The Police and Crime Commissioner is responsible for setting the police budget each year and, with the Chief Constable, decides how it is spent. He also commissions dedicated local support services for victims, as well as funding crime prevention services to address issues such as drug and alcohol misuse, youth crime and anti-social behaviour.
With Council Tax paid by residents currently making up around 47% of the total budget for policing, Warwickshire residents are being asked to share their experience of crime and anti-social behaviour in the county and give their views on where they feel funding priorities should be.
The information from the survey will used to inform the budget process and ongoing understanding of community priorities. Results will be published in January 2023 on the OPCC website.
The survey will be available until Friday 16 December 2022 – please click here to access the survey.
