Police and Crime Panel confirms 1.99% precept rise

From April residents of Devon and Cornwall will pay an extra 1.99% towards keeping communities safe.

Devon and Cornwall Police and Crime Panel has today confirmed Police and Crime Commissioner Tony Hogg's policing budget for 2016-17.

This means an average increase of 6.5p per week (£3.37 a year) for a band D property.

"I am very pleased that the panel has supported my budget. It will mean that we can offset a 0.6% reduction in Government funding," said Mr Hogg.

"This increased revenue, raised locally, will cancel out the shortfall of around £1.8m in Government funding."
