How much does the website cost?
The total cost of the Police.uk contract since the website was launched in January 2011 is £842,128. This is an average of £35,089 per month. Under the current contract (which runs from 30 September 2012 until 30 September 2015), the monthly contracted costs for data collection/processing and maintenance of the website are just over £28,000. These costs are published on the GOV.UK website, as part of transparency datasets showing monthly Home Office spend over £25,000. We will publish any additional costs for new site developments here on the Police.uk site.

Re: And yet they claim cost cuts etc etc etc

It's nothing new.
My local NHS hospitals trust pays out £55k per year for it's website and they openly admit it's done using a WYSIWYG editor. £55kv  Shocked
How many nurses could that pay for? How many medicines to prolong someones life? How many operations could it pay for that they've refused (like me for years)?
Public sector is a farce and then they complain they're skint and they need to mug the private sector of its wages via income tax. It really isn't good.
I need a new signature... i'm bored of the old one!
