As Police and Crime Commissioner, his pledges are to:
- Cut Crime and Keep Surrey Safe

David Munro said:
“It is a privilege and honour to become Surrey’s Police and Crime Commissioner. I look forward to working with Surrey Police and all residents of Surrey to make Surrey Police a service that we can all be proud of.
“I would like to thank Kevin Hurley for all the work he has done and for his courtesy and generosity during a hard fought campaign.”
