Hertfordshire Police and Crime Commissioner first to freeze council tax
The Police and Crime Commissioner for Hertfordshire has become the first in the country to agree a freeze to the policing share of the council tax bill.

David Lloyd’s decision means that the police precept in the county will have stayed the same for five years in a row. At the same time as announcing the freeze, he has outlined plans to protect local policing.

The budget received the approval of Hertfordshire’s Police and Crime Panel on Thursday (24th January), making this the first policing area this year to agree no change.

The Commissioner said: “I am delighted to be able to announce a freeze to the policing share of the Council Tax bill in Hertfordshire.

“This is win-win for Hertfordshire’s residents who will not have to pay more council tax to pay for the police this year and will also see the local policing model in the county protected.”
