I’m asking all residents whether they would support an increase of £10 per average household (Band D), a year, rise in the policing part of council tax for 2022/23.This equates to an extra 83p a month.

The proposal includes plans to:
  • Improve the way Wiltshire Police tackles Violence Against Women and Girls (VAWG) such as training for frontline staff to improve the service victims receive, bolstered digital investigation capability with the introduction of 5 new digital media investigators and dedicated officers and staff to review case files with the aim of improving investigation standards.
  • Increase the number of roads policing officers and collision investigators to improve road safety, drive up enforcement and ensure serious collisions are investigated promptly and to a high standard.
  • Increase the resources available to the child abuse and child internet exploitation teams to ensure that investigations are progressed as quickly as possible and children safeguarded from harm.
I know that in normal times an increase in contributions will be felt by our communities but after the past nearly two years, I realise this increase will be felt more keenly than ever before. The decision to ask for your support for a £10 per year increase has been a difficult one – and one that I would not make if there was an alternative.

Whatever your opinion, I would encourage you to fill out the survey. It is only by making sure your voice is heard that I can truly understand the views of local people.
 
Thank you.
