Can the Association of Police & Crime Commissioners please answer?

09 Feb

We are currently seeing a number of PCCs planning to raise the council tax precept by 1.99% to help address the financial black hole policing faces.

None, as far as I am aware have seen it necessary to go for a higher rise which would then trigger a public referendum where perhaps the turnout would be higher than it was for the 2012 PCC elections.

But what would also be interesting would be if the Association of PCCs published by force the following:

1. By force the level of reserves passed by each police authority to each PCC,

2. By force the level of those reserves held by each PCC as at 31-1-2014,

3. By force the level of reserves each PCC is forecasting they will have in 2016.

Only then perhaps can we have a meaningful debate about whether we are destined to become a hollow force as this recent cartoon from Police Oracle suggests.
