Lincolnshire’s police and crime commissioner (PCC) has issued a statement following speculation over the weekend that the police force could receive a 75 per cent boost to the funding it receives from Government.

As reported by this newspaper online yesterday (Sunday), leaked analysis seen by The Guardian suggests that Lincolnshire Police could be in line to receive a major cash boost under a new funding formula proposed by the Home Office. According to the newspaper, the leaked analysis models the impact of the Home Secretary’s proposed changes to police funding upon police forces across the country.

In response, Lincolnshire PCC Alan Hardwick said in a statement: “I am aware of the speculation, and the figures that have appeared in the media. We await any formal announcements. We are continuing to engage in the debate.”
