The people of Greater Manchester are to be asked to have their say on plans to get residents to pay more for policing.
The proposals from Deputy Mayor aim to plug the shortfall from the Government. Before Christmas GMP were awarded the police grant which included an additional £15m. The authorities claim this money will only cover the police pension shortfall.
The plans would mean a council tax rise of £24 per household over the year.
The proposal includes plans to:
- Recruit 320 additional officers
- Improve the 101 service
- Increase grants to LA's for safety initiatives
Have your say on the council tax proposals at gmconsult.org by the 27th of January.
