Around two-thirds of funding for Police and Crime Commissioners (PCCs) comes directly from Government grants, with around a third coming from a share of council tax – known as police precept. Council tax levels are a local decision and elected PCCs rightly consider what they are asking people to pay to fulfil their strong desire to keep our streets safe.
