Annual Policing Survey 2019

The PCC Matthew Scott is always keen to understand residents' views about policing and crime where they live.

From June to December 2019 he ran his anonymous Annual Policing Survey. A record number of you responded to the survey. Read our summary report of the Annual Policing Survey 2019 detailing the answers you gave, which assisted the PCC in making decisions about policing priorities and spending.

Annual Policing Survey 2018

One of the key roles of the PCC is to set the policing priorities for Kent by consulting with residents. Between June and December 2018, Matthew Scott invited the public to complete a short survey about policing where they live.

A copy of the Annual Policing Survey 2018 and a report of the findings is available here. Thank you to all 1,400 people who had their say.

Cyber-Bullying survey 2018

During his regular engagements with young people across Kent and Medway, one issue which the PCC hears repeated concerns about is cyber-bullying. He has raised these concerns during face-to-face meetings with representatives of some of the world’s biggest social media companies, as well as with Government Ministers.
In February 2018 the PCC surveyed young people to fully understand the scale of the problem in our county. Around 7,000 people responded anonymously with their experiences. A summary of the cyber-bullying survey findings is available here.

Annual Policing Survey 2017

The PCC announced his intention to raise the policing part of council tax - the precept - for 2018/19 in January 2018. He invited members of the public to comment on the proposal before it was discussed by the Kent and Medway Police and Crime Panel on 8 February.

Read our report summarising the key findings of the Annual Policing Survey 2017, and the feedback to the PCC's precept proposal.

Annual Policing Survey 2016

Before writing his new Police and Crime Plan for publication in spring 2017 - and recognising that the 1.8 million people living in Kent and Medway come from a diverse diaspora of urban, rural and coastal communities - the PCC and his senior management team set about formulating a multi-channel consultation exercise in autumn 2016.

This report outlines the findings from the Annual Policing Survey 2016 consultation.
