Office of the Police & Crime Commissioner’s Budget
The Commissioner sought the views of Lancashire taxpayers regarding the 2019/20 police precept (the amount you pay for policing in your Council Tax). The majority of respondents supported a prudent increase of £24 for a Band D property. The precept proposal was supported by members of the Lancashire Police & Crime Panel at their meeting on 21st January 2019. This means that local taxpayers will pay an additional £201.45 for policing per year per household (for a Band D property).
