PCC Wants More Money to Fund Cambs Police…

Have YOUR Say….
Many thanks to those of you who have taken the time to submit your views through my online survey on funding our police service for 2023-24.

As your elected Police and Crime Commissioner, an important part of my job is to set the budget for policing – and that means making sure the Chief Constable has the resources he needs to effectively police Cambridgeshire and Peterborough.

With the current cost-of-living pressures impacting on people’s incomes, believe me, asking you to contribute more to police funding is not something I want to do. 

However it is important to remember that inflation applies to policing as well – with police vehicles, fuel and training all costing more than they did this time last year.

In order to continue to fund the service you receive, I am proposing a 19p weekly increase (for Band A properties), 29p for Band D properties. 

Your views are welcome – please do complete the survey before the deadline of
13th January (5pm). 

You can visit the survey here:

I would like to wish you all a very happy and healthy new year.

Best wishes


Darryl Preston

Police and Crime Commissioner
