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. Thank you to all 1,400 people who had their say. The findings of the survey will be published here in due course.
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 findings is available here.
council tax precept 2018/19
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.
A report has been compiled which summarises the key findings of the Annual Policing Survey 2017, and the feedback to the PCC's precept proposal.
