Violence Reduction Challenge

The PCC Matthew Scott has made tackling violence a priority for Kent Police, and he has pledged to enhance services for victims of crime and abuse.

While the Government has published its own national Serious Violence Strategy, Matthew is keen to see what can be done locally here in Kent. He has launched a Violence Reduction Challenge - a year-long study working with victims, residents, charities, statutory bodies and others to learn about people’s experiences of violent crime, its causes, and how it can be tackled.

Violent crime and young people

As part of the Violence Reduction Challenge, Matthew wants to hear from young people about their experiences of violent crime and whether or not it is something you are worried about. Please fill in the short survey below.

You will not be asked for your name or your school and no-one will know what answers you have put. This does mean, however, that we will be unable to contact you to talk to you about any crimes you might tell us about here. If you have been a victim of crime you should report it to Kent Police so they can help you.

Also, before you start the survey, remember that not all violent crimes involve someone being seriously hurt. Things like pushing and shoving are also included and Matthew wants to hear about those too.
