Commenting, Kevin Hurley said:

“I promised during my election campaign that I would be accessible to the public and give them a greater say on how their streets are policed. Directly involving local residents in the development of the Police and Crime Plan – the single most important strategy document for policing in Surrey – is one way that I can help to make sure Surrey Police is tackling the things that really matter to them.

“We all have a stake in the community in which we live and the public services that we pay for. These events are about all of us as Surrey people working together and being positive about the difference we can make. Fulfilling our responsibility to help make our county a better place to live by making sure our police force is focused on the issues that really concern us. I warmly encourage the public to come along and join me.”
