Your council tax money
Find out how much of your council tax is spent on policing. It’s our responsibility to agree (in consultation with Greater Manchester’s 10 local authorities) how much of your council tax should be spent on policing services in order to deliver value for money.

Annual audit letters
These reports are usually expected around September-October each year. They summarise the findings of the audit commission with regards to our financial statements and the arrangements we’ve made to make sure we deliver value for money in our use of resources.
The budget report is one of the most important documents that the Police and Crime Commissioner has to consider during the course of the year. We review our current plans and achievements in financial terms and set out our aspirations for the coming year, taking into account the likely resources available, key identified priorities, and the impact on the policing plan.
