Norfolk: Police Ask For More Money To Deal With Sex Offenders
Norfolk's Police and Crime Commissioner has told Heart officers need more money to cope with a rise in the number of sex offenders living in the county.
Stephen Bett is asking for a rise in the part of Council Tax that goes towards policing of close to 2%.
It would mean the average band D home would pay an extra £3.50 a year.
Mr Bett says it'll mean they can keep all the officers they have now and won't have any frontline job cuts, and he says some will be spent on the Vulnerable Person's unit who investigate crime against children, the elderly and vulnerable adults.
During an interview with Heart today Mr Bett said the Jimmy Savile investigation has led to a rise in people coming forward with historic sexual offence claims and that will also need more money to do the investigations properly.
And the Police and Crime Commissioner said more sex offenders were choosing to live in Norfolk after leaving prison, needing more resources from the police to keep people safe from them.
