Responding to Coronavirus

Coronavirus stay home protect the NHS save lives

In these unprecedented times there are a lot of unknowns and people will naturally be worrying about what the coming weeks and months will bring.

Amongst all that uncertainty we want to reassure you that Merseyside Police's officers and staff will be working 24/7 to protect you and prevent crime. They will continue to do that despite what happens.

The police have well-practiced plans in place and will do all they can to protect our communities, prevent crime and preserve life. The Police and Crime Commissioner, Jane Kennedy, is working alongside the Chief Constable, Andy Cooke, to support this work wherever she can.

Jane wants your views on policing funding today...

The Police Commissioner has to set the police budget soon.

She wants your views on  if you would be willing to contribute an extra 19p a week in your council tax  to enable the Chief Constable to recruit 160 new police officers next year, as well help balance the budget and protect jobs?

Without the extra funding the Commissioner will have to reduce the budget, the recruitment of new officers can’t
go ahead and the Chief Constable will be required to cut back on the service again.
