Surrey Police and Crime Commissioner

The Police and Crime Commissioner is responsible for setting the strategic objectives for policing in Surrey.

This includes setting and updating a police and crime plan, setting the force budget and precept, and appointing, and where necessary dismissing, the Chief Constable. The Police and Crime Panel will play a key role in scrutinising decisions made by the Commissioner in connection to these responsibilities.

These arrangements are designed to increase transparency of the delivery of policing services and to give the public the ability to ensure their police are accountable. As such the Chief Constable of Surrey Police is accountable to the Commissioner, and the Commissioner is accountable to the electorate.

For further information on the role of the Police and Crime Commissioner go to the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner website.

You can find further information on the Police and Crime Commissioner candidates standing for election in the Surrey Police Area on the Choose My PCC website.

Surrey Police and Crime Panel

The role of the Surrey Police and Crime Panel is to examine the actions and decisions of Surrey's Police and Crime Commissioner and to make sure information is available for the public so that they can hold their Commissioner to account.

The Panel is a joint committee hosted by Surrey County Council, and consists of one elected councillor from each of Surrey's twelve local authorities and two co-opted independent members.
