Safer In Kent: The Community Safety and Criminal Justice Plan

Plan on a page2019.jpg

The Police and Crime Commissioner must produce a Police and Crime Plan that sets out his vision and priorities for policing and community safety, as well as the objectives and ambitions that Kent Police will be held to account on.

This is called Safer in Kent: The Community Safety and Criminal Justice Plan.

The plan is supplemented by a separate document entitled Backing Young People. It sets out clear commitments to supporting, working with and being directly accountable to Kent and Medway’s young people.

Annual reports

Under the Police Reform and Social Responsibility Act 2011, the PCC must produce an Annual Report which documents progress made in meeting the objectives within the Police and Crime Plan.

The report also discharges the PCC's duty under the Ministry of Justice’s grant agreement for victim services funding, to specify the support services he has commissioned or provided with a grant, including referral services.
