Budget and Accounts

The Police and Crime Commissioner must set an annual budget for policing.  Most of the funding for South Yorkshire Police comes directly from the Government via the police grant, and the remainder comes from the public of South Yorkshire as the police part of the Council Tax.  This is known as the 'precept'. 

The Government has agreed to give the police the same level of funding as last year in 'cash terms', provided that the precept is set at the maximum level permitted. 

At its meeting on 2nd February 2018 , the Police and Crime Panel supported the proposal of the Police and Crime Commissioner to increase Council Tax for 2018/19 equivalent to £12 for a Band D property (a 7.6% increase) to £170.16.  For Band A properties this equates to an annual increase of £8.00, to £113.44 and for Band B properties an increase of £9.33, to £132.35. 

You can view the Precept reports in the Library.
