    • Share this item

    One of the main responsibilities of a Police & Crime Commissioner is to set out a Police and Crime Plan to cover their current tenure and until the end of the financial year after the next election. The Plan should be set as soon as is practicable after an election, at the latest before the end of the financial year after election, that is March 2022.

     

    PCC Lisa Townsend wishes to make sure that the Plan she sets is the right one for Surrey and is reflective of as wide a range of views as possible. As part of this she is carrying out extensive consultation, assisted by her Deputy. The Plan also needs to reflect operational demands and the professional opinion of the Chief Constable.

     

    The consultation and timescales for publishing the Plan are set out in the report.
