DN 04/2019: 2019/20 Police Budget, Medium Term Financial Plan and Associated Papers

Commissioner sets the police budget for 2019/20 which includes funding for an additional 50 police officers and 20 PCSOs, bringing North Yorkshire Police almost back to 2010 levels of resources.

Following a public consultation and an initial veto of a proposed £23.95 increase in the Police Precept, the Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner for North Yorkshire proposed a £22.95 increase of the police precept, for a Band D property, to the Police, Fire and Crime Panel. This revised proposal was supported by the Panel and subsequent to this the 2019/20 budget process has been concluded and the papers attached to this paper provide the detail of the financial plans for 2019/20 and beyond.
