Final budget report for 2024/25

Your Council Tax

It's the Commissioner's responsibility 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'.
