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.’
Council Tax Precept Consultation 2020/2021
Over the last two years working with the Chief Constable and with your support as council tax payers, we have been able to increase the number of police officers by 45 taking the number of officers in the county from 1,120 in 2016 to 1,165. This would not have been possible without the support of residents.
I wish I could achieve this without any increase in tax, but I have to be realistic and face the stark reality crime is changing and becoming more complicated for example, county lines is more prevalent.
This year, we are proposing an additional 74p a month (for Band D properties) on council tax for policing.
If you would like a say in the 2020/21 consultation please take our short survey which can be found here.
