    The cost will come out of the North Wales Police budget.

    Actually they do measure speed as well as traffic volume. They are not accurate enough to issue speeding tickets but they do measure speed for statistical purposes. Traffic volume can be measured by a single cable.

    Jimbow, whilst I am not privy to their group activities. I believe the 2 groups meet up occasionally to discuss issues. I don’t know if they meet up in 2 groups or 1 big group though. Maybe a bit of both. I don’t really have a problem with people getting together in groups but I don’t really understand why there are 2 Independent groups if they decide to work as a coalition. I would think it would be better if there were two groups to have a broadly left leaning group and a broadly right leaning group. If that makes sense.

    For information, there are 2 Independent Councillors in Wrexham who are not affiliated to either group. :-)

    The thing is, you have to have either a PCC office or another body such as the Police Authority of the past. Either way there will be the cost. Sorry but you cannot just get rid, it doesn’t work like that.

    sportsboy – Not actually true. Prior the the PCC’s running the Police Forces, that work was done by the Police Authorities. There is plenty of information on the internet which shows that it was a pretty similar cost.

    Here is just one set of information which was obtained by a FIO in West Mercia

    “…. However, as a comparison, it might be useful to consider the staffing
    budget for the Police Authority and compare that with the PCC office.

    The staffing budget for 2011/12 for the West Mercia Police Authority was
    £765,000. (This includes staff and member allowances).

    The staffing budget, 2012/13 including Part Year Commissioner’s costs was
    £774,000. (Includes part year members allowances and part year
    Commissioners salary.

    The full year effect of Commissioners budget in 2013/14 is £730,000
    (includes Commissioner and team only).”
