Commissioner freezes tax while safeguarding local policing
The Police and Crime Commissioner, David Lloyd, has today (Thursday 16th January) announced his intention to freeze this year’s Council Tax precept for policing while at the same time protecting local policing in Hertfordshire.

The announcement marks the fourth year running that there will be no increase in the policing share of the Council Tax bill in the county.

The Commissioner issued an open letter last year seeking views on his long-term plans. In the attached statement Protecting Local Policing for the Future, released today, the Commissioner said: “I am pleased to confirm my intention to freeze policing taxes for the fourth year running.

“In doing so, I am confident that the future of Hertfordshire’s local policing model can be safeguarded. At the same time I am committing to funding the vital partnership work across the county which keeps our communities safe in each district and borough.”
