PCC Hardyal Dhindsa's Response to Provisional Police Grant Report

Response to Provisional Police Grant Report (England and Wales) 2021/22 made on 17 December 2020 by Kit Malthouse, the Minister of State for Crime and Policing

Hardyal Dhindsa, Derbyshire’s Police and Crime Commissioner, said:

“While we need a little time to digest the detail of today’s announcement, what is clear from today’s announcement is that the number of police officers promised by the Government for 21-22 has reduced by 2000 nationally.  In Derbyshire we were due to see 113 new officers next year, from the uplift programme, now we will see just 79, a 30% reduction.

“The Government also expects local taxpayers to pay more towards policing, with a £15 Band D increase in the policing portion of the council tax bill.  In Derbyshire this equates to 6.6% and we will need to consult local people to see how they wish to see their money invested.”
