Humberside PCC to raise council tax precept for policing

Keith Hunter says he has no alternative.

Humberside's Police and Crime Commissioner says he has no alternative, but to raise the council tax precept for policing by over 10%.

Keith Hunter says it gives them an extra £2.2 million to fund the force. 

He says: "I hate having to increase taxes for local people."

He added: "The reality is, I've got to ensure that the communities of the Humberside Police area have a police force which is capable of delivering what they want".

His plans for the next financial year have been backed by the Humberside Police and Crime Panel.

It means for a Band D property, residents will be paying over £223, a £24 increase on the previous year.
