Surrey PCC pleased with latest HMIC report

In its latest report on the legitimacy and ethics of Surrey Police, Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Constabulary has graded the force as “good” overall.

It also awards individual “good” gradings for each of the three areas that cover ethics, public engagement and the use of the stop and search policy.

Kevin Hurley said:

“This is a well-deserved report which reflects the hard work done by Surrey Police to meet the needs of the local communities whilst taking good care of its own staff. Two policing priorities among the six identified by Surrey residents are being able to have their say on policing and to see a police force with high standards. This report reflects positively on those aims.

“Surrey Police still faces challenges in managing the rise in crimes against vulnerable people (domestic abuse, rape and child sexual exploitation) but being recognised as an ethical and legitimate police force provides the foundation for continuing to make the improvements needed.”
