David Lloyd, the Police and Crime Commissioner for Hertfordshire, is proposing an increase equal to £1 a month on the average household* council tax rate to invest in more officers and additional investigation teams.

Following the Police Funding Settlement announcement by the Home Office in December, David Lloyd will be able to raise an additional £5.3m for policing in Hertfordshire in 2018/19.

This will be spent on protecting neighbourhood policing teams, investing in additional officers from Hertfordshire's 
specialist Operation Scorpion units to help tackle burglary, anti-social behaviour and drug-related crime.

Additional funding will also be placed into the Force Control Room, where 999 and 101 calls have risen dramatically since the terrorist attacks in Manchester and London.

There will also be more funding for crime investigation teams to make sure that victims of crime receive the best care possible.

Under the proposals, Hertfordshire would continue to have one of the lowest council tax precept of any force in England and has one of the lowest crime rates in the country.

You can read the Commissioner’s open letter to residents, alongside other materials, below.

* This figure relates to a typical Band D property. Other bands would pay a proportionate amount.
