The budget report is one of the most important documents that the Police Commissioner has to consider during the course of the year.
Emily produces her final budget report for the year after holding a special public budget meeting.
Your Council Tax
It's the Commissioner's responsivity to set the policing element of your Council Tax for the year (the 'precept').
She does this following consultation with the public, Merseyside's local authorities and the Police and Crime Panel. This is how much of your council tax should be spent on policing services in order to deliver value for money.
This information is provided in the 'precept leaflet'.
