In 2007 a decision was taken for Kent Police to collaborate with Essex Police on operational functions and support services. The aim of the collaboration programme is to provide a better service and value for money to the people of Kent and Essex.

Both Police and Crime Commissioners and forces are working together on the following business areas where there is a financial benefit:
  • Shared Support Services e.g. IT, HR, finance, transport and procurement
  • Serious Crime Directorate that deals with major crime
Kent Police provides further information on collaboration work with Essex Police and information about collaborative work with other agencies.
