Annual police budget
The Police and Crime Commissioner has responsibility for the police budget, which comprises a combination of central government grants and money from the local police precept. (The police precept is the amount raised from local people via their Council Tax.)
Outside of the policing precept, by far the most significant amount of funding received is from central government, which is in turn determined by a complex funding formula.
In 2017/18 the gross budget requirement is £160.189m.
The budget requirement is funded as:
|Contribution to/(from) Reserves and Balances||-5,509|
|Total Budget 2017/18||141,689|
|Home Office Grant||-67,762|
|Council Tax Support Grant||-5,746|
|Council Tax Freeze Grants||-2,152|
|Total Government Funding||-75,660|
|Estimated Collection Fund Surplus||-993||-76,653|
|Balance required from the Precept||65,036|
