Merseyside Police has a budget of more than £330 million. That money is used to employ 6,100 officers, PCSOs and staff.

The Commissioner is committed to being open and transparent as to how she sets the Merseyside Police budget.

Each year the PCC sets the budget to deliver an efficient and effective police force.

This page details how budgets are set, money is invested and what checks and balances are in place to ensure value for money is achieved.

Jane wants your views on policing funding today...

The Police Commissioner has to set the police budget soon.

She wants your views on  if you would be willing to contribute an extra 19p a week in your council tax  to enable the Chief Constable to recruit 160 new police officers next year, as well help balance the budget and protect jobs?

Without the extra funding the Commissioner will have to reduce the budget, the recruitment of new officers can’t
go ahead and the Chief Constable will be required to cut back on the service again.
