Police budget

how your money is spent

The Office of the Kent Police and Crime Commissioner uses taxpayers' money to make Kent a safer place to live and work, and you have a right to see how we spend it.

The PCC is responsible for the Kent Police budget of £318m for 2017/18.

Council tax and funding

The PCC is responsible for setting the police part of the council tax bill, known as the police precept.

Following local consultation with the public and partners, Mr Scott's proposal to increase the precept for 2017/18 was approved at a meeting of the Kent and Medway Police and Crime Panel.

The precept has been set at £157.15 for the year for an average (Band D) property. This is an increase of £5, or 3.3%, on last year's precept.
