Annual policing survey 2018

One of the key roles of the PCC is to set the policing priorities for Kent by consulting with residents.

Matthew Scott would be delighted if you could complete this short survey about policing where you live. For information about how we use your personal information click here to read our privacy notice.
Do you currently work for, or volunteer with, the police?:*

Have you been a victim of crime in Kent in the last year?:*

How safe do you feel where you live, on a scale of 1 to 10?:*

9. The PCC is responsible for the Kent Police budget, which is roughly £185 per person in the county. On a scale of 1 to 10, do you think the services you get represent value for that £185?:*

*The £185 figure is based on the Kent Police budget (£333.3million), divided by the number of people living in Kent and Medway (1.8million)

Previous consultations

cyber-bullying survey

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 data will be published in due course.

council tax precept 2018/19

Matthew Scott launched his Annual Policing Survey on 23 June 2017, to find out what issues were important to residents across Kent and Medway. The survey closed on 10 January 2018.

Thank you to everyone who took part.

The PCC then announced his intention to raise the policing part of council tax - the precept - for 2018/19 and 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.

A report has been compiled which summarises the key findings of the Annual Policing Survey, and the feedback to the PCC's precept proposal.
