The next meeting of the Sussex Police and Crime Panel takes place on Friday, January 22.

It is being held at County Hall, St Anne’s Crescent, Lewes, East Sussex, BN7 1UE.

The meeting starts at 10.30am.

Topics on the agenda include the proposed precept for the Police and Crime Commissioner regarding the 2016/17 budget.

The Panel is being asked to consider a £5 rise for a Band D property owner – which equates to a 3.4% increase in the precept.

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 do not accept the proposed precept it has a power of veto.”

Brad added: “In the event of a veto the Commissioner must produce a revised precept by February 15.

“A provisional meeting date of Thursday 18 February has been arranged for the Panel to meet to consider a revised precept and make reports to the Commissioner.

“However, the Panel does not have the power of veto over the revised precept.”

Also on the agenda there will be a presentation on ‘Progress on the Local Policing Model’, the Chief Constable’s plan for transforming the way Sussex is policed in the face of financial challenges.

The meeting will be webcast live here.
