Jonathan Evison is asking people to look at each option on offer and fill in on online survey.
This is part of a consultation which means the Government has imposed a duty on PCCs to consult the public about how much is added to council tax bills to contribute towards the cost of police operations.
PCC Jonathan Evison said: “When I was elected as Police and Crime Commissioner Humberside Police had already made a significant investment in increasing the number of police officers to around 600 more than the low point in 2016.
“There is improved visibility of officers, a much-improved 101 call service, and a desire to improve the force even further.

“There are still challenging savings targets to be met and I will be working with the Chief Constable to ensure we deliver an effective service to our residents.”
Mr Evison has set out three options:
○ Option 1: An increase of £4.99 per year (10p per week) on a Band D property, which would mean police officer numbers would decrease by around 28.
○ Option 2: An increase of £9.99 per year (19p per week) on a Band D property, which would mean police officer numbers would remain the same.
○ Option 3: An increase of £14.99 per year (29p per week) on a Band D property, which would mean police officer numbers increase by around 28. This option would require a public referendum.
Mr Evison added: “The majority of properties within the Humberside Police area are in lower Council Tax bands than D, on which the Government bases its financial forecasts. 34% of households are in Band A , 21% in Band B and 16% in Band C so, for the vast majority, the proposed council tax increases are smaller.”
