Last Chance To Have Your Say On Police Budget

Avon and Somerset Police Authority are reminding us there are just days left to have a say on how the force cops with a 40 million pound budget cut over the next 4 years.

Police Authority Chair Dr Peter Heffer said: “We are focused on working with the police and the public to ensure that wherever possible this cut will not impact on local communities."

“We are committed to doing everything possible to protect the public from harm and to keep our communities safe but we must not underestimate the difficulties ahead with a 20% cut in Government funding. I cannot encourage people enough to take a couple of minutes of their time to carry out this very important survey. We will continue to talk to residents to get their views and opinions, as we look to make the right decisions for policing Avon and Somerset.”

You can take part in the survey on-line by clicking the link on the right.  The survey should take about 5 or 10 minutes to complete and will be available until January 14, 2011.

If anyone would like a hard-copy of the survey posted to them they can request one on 01275 816377 or by e-mailing
