Residents of Reigate & Banstead are invited to the Borough’s first ever Crime Summit. The Summit, which takes place on Saturday 8 June 2.30-4.30pm at the Harlequin Centre in Redhill, will bring together residents, Surrey Police, Reigate & Banstead Borough Council and the Police and Crime Commissioner to discuss what is going on in the Borough, identify any issues and work together on solving them.

Attendees for the event will include:

Kevin Hurley, Police and Crime Commissioner for Surrey

Jeff Harris, Deputy Police and Crime Commissioner for Surrey

Superintendent Matt Bristow, Surrey Police Superintendent for East Surrey

Inspector Richard Haycock, Surrey Police Neighbourhood Policing Commander for Reigate & Banstead

Cllr. Joan Spiers, Leader, Reigate & Banstead Borough Council

The Summit will open with brief talks from the PCC, the Borough Council and Surrey Police. The event will then move into discussion groups to hear from the public about the things that matter to them. Attendees will be asked to suggest topics for discussion as part of the registration process and we will run the groups on the most popular topics.

The Summit will be two hours in length and refreshments will be provided.

Following his election as Police and Crime Commissioner in November 2012, Kevin Hurley pledged to hold Crime Summits in each Borough and District in Surrey. The Reigate & Banstead Summit is the first of these to be held in the County. Details of each subsequent Summit will be published as arrangements are finalised.

Kevin Hurley said: “I was elected as a Zero-tolerance Police and Crime Commissioner. Zero-tolerance means not ignoring problems and not walking by when we see something wrong. It is about always doing something, in a sensible, measured and proportionate way.

“The Crime Summit is a chance for Reigate & Banstead residents to let the Police, the Council and I know what is going on in the Borough and what matters most to you. We want to know what your concerns are and we want to take action in partnership to make things better where you live.

“If you live in Reigate & Banstead, I encourage you to have a think about how things in your area might be improved and come along to the Summit to talk to us. I look forward to seeing you there.”
