About Surrey and Surrey Police

Surrey is an area of varied geography, with a mix of busy towns and rural villages and a population of 1.2m residents.

Surrey Police allocate their officer and staff resources at a number of different levels. Its neighbourhood teams operate at a borough and district level, working locally with communities. These connect communities into more specialist policing services, such as response policing and investigative teams, which often work at a divisional level. Surrey-wide teams such as major crime investigation, firearms, roads policing and police dogs, work across the county and in many cases, in collaborated teams with Sussex Police.

Surrey Police has a workforce establishment of 2,105 warranted police officers and 1,978 police staff. Many of our police staff are in operational roles such as specialist investigators, Police Community Support Officers, crime analysts, forensics and contact centre staff taking 999 and 101 calls. With funding from the Government’s police uplift programme, Surrey Police is currently increasing its number of police officers and is working on improving representation of the workforce to reflect the diversity of Surrey’s communities.
