The Parish Council are interested in hearing your views on policing, crime and security in Claydon. Let us know your thoughts on:
- A PCSO dedicated to Claydon, who would work Monday to Friday mainly between 8 and 6, but may have some flexibility around times worked. This would cost approximately £37,000 per year + extra for a car and will mean an increase in the parish precept by approximately 95% in the first year (approximately £50 a year for a Band D property). There may be potential to work in partnership with surrounding parishes for a share in a PCSO.
- Use of a security company, similar to the contract that Barham Parish Council used with DK9 Security, who could potentially work 12 hours a week over six days, including in the evenings. This would cost approximately £9,400 in the first year and will mean an increase in the parish precept by a minimum of 25% (approximately £15 a year for a Band D property) in the first year.
- Increase in physical security measures in locations that are particularly prone to anti-social behaviour, such as security lighting and CCTV at the Recreation Ground. This could cost within the region of £5,000 and could possibly be funded from reserves as a one off installation cost, or an additional 10% for the parish precept (approximately £5 per year for a Band D property).
- No additional security measures required.
