13th August 2019 - Expenses/cost - response

I understand that there was additional contributions requested via the local Council Tax that was agreed to in order to ensure that there would be adequate policing and an increase in police numbers, however I have been unable to find anything that details this.

Therefore can I please request information as to how Devon and Cornwall Police were funded for the 19/20 financial year.


1st June 2019 - Expenses/cost - response

Can I request the annual budget to support the office of the Police and Crime commissioner. This is to include the salaries of the Commisioner and her team along with overheads such as office support services and all expenses.

Further correspondence:

Am I correct that the OPCC cost the tax payer £5,152.000 for the financial year 2018/19?

Therefore can you provide an headline data breakdown of the £5,152,000 spend (if that is correct)

I would also like to know how much in approximate terms a police constable costs the organisation in salary and support services.
