THE COST of policing in Sussex will be discussed soon in front of a live webcam.

Sussex Police and Crime Panel will discuss the cost of policing in 2015/16 at its next meeting in Lewes from 10.30am on Friday January 23.

Katy Bourne, Sussex Police and Crime Commissioner, will give reveal the proposed policing precept residents will pay.

If the Panel does not accept it has a power of veto, in which case the commissioner will have to create a revised proposal.

The force announced in December that it faced further job losses as it was ‘exploring new ways of working’.

It said there would be a drop in the number of its employees in a bid to make savings of £55m by 2020.
