‘How safe do you feel where you live?’
That is the one of the key questions Matthew Scott, the Police and Crime Commissioner for Kent, is asking residents this summer.
Mr Scott said: ‘I set Kent Police’s priorities based on the things people tell me matter to them. My Annual Policing Survey is a key way in which I get to hear what you think about your police force. I want to know what you think Kent Police does well and what it could do better.
‘I’m responsible for ensuring Kent Police provides an effective and efficient service so I’m asking you, plain and simple, to rate how safe you feel in your community and also what to extent you think you get value for money.’
Mr Scott added: ‘I’ve had a tremendous response from those I’ve met at big public events like the Kent County Show and the Kent Police Open Day so far this summer but I want as many people as possible to take the opportunity to have their say. Based on the results of last year’s survey, I took the decision to put more money into recruiting up to 200 more police officers, so your views really can make a difference.’
The survey, which only takes a couple of minutes to complete, is available at www.kent-pcc.gov.uk/consultations. A hard-copy leaflet, and a large print version, are also available on request. Questions about people’s gender, where they live, age and ethnicity have been included to enable the PCC to spot trends among different communities.
