Virtual meeting

Merseyside's Police Commissioner will meet virtually with her PCC colleagues from around the country today.

 

Jane Kennedy is attending a General Meeting of the Association of Police and Crime Commissioner's (APCC), the national body which represents Police and Crime Commissioners (PCCs).

Due to the current restrictions around people's movements in light of the Coronavirus pandemic, this meeting is being held virtually, allowing PCCs to join together and discuss critical issues remotely from their areas across England and Wales.

Find out more about the APCC here.

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.
