I have consulted widely on the priorities set out within this Plan.
I will report progress against this Police and Crime Plan publicly to the Police and Crime Panel and I will issue an Annual Report to inform the public, partners and stakeholders what has been happening in the previous 12 months.
I wish to thank all those residents and stakeholders who met with me and my Deputy Commissioner or completed our consultation survey. These included:
- The 2,593 residents who responded to the Police and Crime Plan survey
- Surrey’s MPs
- Elected representatives from Surrey’s County, Borough, District and Parish Councils
- The Surrey Police and Crime Panel
- The Chief Constable and his senior team
- Surrey Police officers, staff and representatives from their unions
- Schools, colleges and universities in Surrey
- Children and young people – professionals and representatives
- Mental Health support services
- Victims Support Services
- Prisons, Probation and other criminal justice partners
- Road safety representatives
- Rural crime representatives
- Partners working to reduce youth violence
- Community safety representatives
- The Surrey Police Independent Advisory Group
The Commissioner holds the Chief Constable to account, to improve the service you receive.
We support services that make our communities safer, reduce re-offending and help victims to cope and recover.
