Katy Bourne, Sussex Police and Crime Commissioner, will give the Panel details of Sussex Police’s budget for the next financial year, and the proposed policing precept that residents will pay.

The Panel is meeting at County Hall, Lewes, and the meeting is open to the public and will also be webcast from 10.30am.

West Sussex County Councillor Brad Watson OBE, who chairs the Panel, said: “The Panel is responsible for reviewing the Commissioner’s proposed precept and making reports and recommendations. If the Panel does not accept the proposed precept it has a power of veto.

“In the event the veto is exercised, a provisional meeting date of Friday 20 February has been arranged for the Panel to consider the Commissioner’s revised proposed precept. However, the Panel does not have the power of veto over the revised precept.”

“It promises to be a busy and interesting meeting,” said Brad.

Katy Bourne, Sussex Police and Crime Commissioner, added: “Over the two months I have had a county-wide consultation about the Police Precept and we have had a very good response from the public. I look forward to presenting the results of the survey at the Police and Crime Panel meeting."

The webcast of the meeting can be found from 10.30am on 23 January from the East Sussex County Council webcast web pages.
