2024/25 Precept approved by Police and Crime Panel

2024/25 precept approved by Police and Crime Panel

A Police precept rise of 8.69% was approved by the Police and Crime Panel in Merthyr Tydfil on Tuesday, 6th February, meaning that households across South Wales will pay and extra £2.35 or less for policing in 2024/25.

The rise in the precept was agreed after Police and Crime Commissioner, Alun Michael, together with South Wales Police Chief Constable, Jeremy Vaughan, presented the panel with a detailed overview of the challenges faced by the force and the significant steps which have been taken to save money, invest in technology and ensure that operational policing is working more efficiently and effectively.

A detailed response by the Police and Crime Panel will be published on their website.

Band D households will pay £2.35 extra per month for policing, but the majority of people, who make up 68% of households in South Wales, will pay far less – somewhere between £1.44 and £1.92 extra per month. The new council tax levy brings the cost for policing in South Wales in line with the average in Wales.
