This survey is still open for people to complete. Initially it asks the public of Kent what skillset they would like the new Chief Constable to have. The following questions then ask what crimes matter to you, how safe you feel in your area, whether you have been a victim of crime, and how effective the subsequent support you received was.
The PCC Matthew Scott asked residents to have their say about the future direction of Kent Police. He also asked them for their views about policing and crime in their area, their feelings of safety and whether they had been a victim of crime in the last year. You can read the survey results here:
Results of the PCC's Violence Against Women and Girls Survey
In August 2021, Kent’s Police and Crime Commissioner, Matthew Scott, launched a survey to find out the extent of violence and abuse being perpetrated against women and girls in Kent, including online.
He also wanted to know how safe women and girls felt in different aspects of their lives.
The questionnaire was open for 3 months, during which time 8,263 people filled it in. This is an unprecedented number of respondents for a questionnaire launched by the PCC and attracted answers from all age groups and ethnicities. Anyone over the age of 16 was invited to respond. Just over 93% of those who did were women, with just over 3.5% men.
