Suffolk’s Police and Crime Commissioner, Tim Passmore has confirmed he is proposing to raise the policing element of the council tax by £2 a month and wants to hear your views.

If it goes ahead this will see an additional 29 police officers recruited to the force.

This additional resource will allow the Chief Constable to enhance police visibility and pro-activity across the county, and increase the Constabulary’s capacity to deal with more complex investigations which is what residents of Suffolk have asked for.

The PCC’s website is asking whether the public supports his proposals and explains why the increase is necessary. CLICK HERE TO TAKE PART IN THE SURVEY.
