Have your say: ‘Our Police, Our Community’ survey

Did you know the Police & Crime Commissioner is responsible for setting the South Wales Police budget and deciding what further funds need to be raised from the additional charge on council tax?

This is called the police ‘precept’ and accounts for nearly one half of South Wales Police’s funding, with the rest coming from the Government. In setting the precept, the Commissioner consults with the local electorate through the ‘Our Police, Our Community’ survey which was launched earlier this month.

Responses to the survey will help the Commissioner decide what the public will pay for policing through their council tax in 2024/25.

Residents in South Wales currently pay the Welsh average for policing, which is significantly less than the cost of policing in North Wales for instance.

Please visit the South Wales Police and Crime Commissioner website to have your say.
