Fees and Charges 2019/20

Report of the Commissioner.


Members considered a report of the Commissioner regarding Fees and Charges 2019/20 and the following points were made.


·         The Commissioner acknowledged that cost-recovery should inform the underlying charging model but noted that some items were set nationally and out of the control of the Force.


·         In response to a question, the Chief Operating and Chief Financial Officer confirmed that other Forces such as the Metropolitan Police charged for the suppy of a domestic violence report and that the proposed charge was considered appropriate.


·         In response to a question from a Member, the Commissioner confirmed that there was scope to review the level of fees and charges further.


·         Members requested an interim report to the November 2019 meeting providing detail on the proposed charges and the Force’s wider charging model, in anticipation of a full report being submitted to the January 2020 meeting.


RESOLVED, that the proposed increases to fees and charges for 2019/20 outlined in appendices 1 and 2 of the report be approved with immediate effect.
