The budget is set by the Police, Fire & Rescue and Crime Commissioner on an annual basis. It establishes what the Commissioner intends to spend on policing, fire & rescue services and crime reduction across Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent.The Medium-Term Financial Strategy is the Commissioner’s key financial planning document setting out the budget requirement for the next four years. The majority of funding comes from central government grants. A smaller proportion is raised through the use of reserves and locally through council tax.You can find out more information on how your council tax is spent across police and fire services in the precept leaflet below.
