Council Tax 2016/17
Dorset Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC), Martyn Underhill, has set the annual policing budget for 2016/17 including raising the Policing element of the Council Tax by 1.97% - around 1p per day for a band D household.
In setting the Policing Precept for the year, the PCC has sought to balance the desire to keep the Council Tax low while simultaneously ensuring Dorset Police is adequately resourced to meet the needs of residents across the county.
The PCC has a statutory obligation to set the police budget and precept. For more information on why the PCC chose to raise the precept, please click here.
