Sussex Police funding 2018-2022
17th November 2018


Sussex Police funding 2018-2022


Sussex Police have started the biggest intake of new police officers for over a decade. This has been made possible by the increase in police precept of an average £12 for a band D property, and the PCC releasing £17 million from reserves. It means that over the next four years, Sussex will have 200 more police officers on the frontline than it does today.


Although residents are pleased to hear that local policing will be strengthened by these 200 extra officers, they are already indicating that they would like even more. That is why the PCC has opened a survey on her website to gauge potential support for raising more funding locally if the Government lifts the current cap on the police precept.

Public Toilets in Lancing

In respect of an article recently published in a political newsletter, the Parish Council would like to confirm that it has NOT closed the public toilets at Monks Recreation Ground.

The toilets are owned and managed by Adur District Council and were given an internal refurbishment not so long ago.
