Welcome to Cumbria Police and Crime Commissioner’s Website
‘Welcome to my website, I hope you find it informative, helpful and easy to use.
As part of my role as Police and Crime Commissioner, I have been elected to:
· engage with the public of Cumbria;
· to set the policing priorities; and
· to hold the Chief Constable to account.
On my website you can read how I am fulfilling my role in these important areas.
Please do get in touch if you have any suggestions for improvements to my website, or if you think there is any other additional information you would like to see.’
Many thanks to everyone who took part in my recent consultation on proposals to increase the policing part of the council tax by up to an additional £12 per year (for a Band D property). I am pleased to announce that 71% of those that responded to the consultation supported my proposals.
This will be a real boost to front line policing addressing your local concerns such as anti-social behaviour and at the same time meeting the emerging pressures and rising demand such as online-crime.
Now that I have gathered your views, the Chief Constable’s recommendation and support from the Police Crime Panel I will be able to finalise the budget which will be done formally at my Public Accountability Conference on Wednesday 14 February. You can read my media release here
