PCC comment on the police grant settlement


PCC logo

Avon and Somerset’s Police and Crime Commissioner Sue Mountstevens said: “We have today received news on the provisional police main grant for next year in 2013/14 there will be £177.3m for policing in Avon and Somerset. This is in line with our expectations and means we will be able to balance the remaining deficit for 2013/14.

“It is disappointing that the response to the consultation on the unfair funding formula which sees Avon and Somerset miss out on £20m has been postponed until the next Comprehensive Spending Review (2015/16). So once again our area will continue to miss out on money it is assessed to need.

“We are busy looking over the detail of the funding announcements and that of the community safety fund and we will be engaging the police and our partners in any future funding decisions.”
