Police & Crime Plan


More information

How does the Commissioner set the Police & Crime Plan?

The aims and outcomes underpinning each of the Plan's objectives have been carefully developed to ensure they accurately reflect the policing, crime and community safety issues which members of the public have told the Commissioner and the office are most important to them.

The Commissioner undertakes a public engagement programme called ‘Talk Sussex’ each year. She attends a variety of events including Pride and the Eastbourne 999 show to talk to members of the public. The information form these conversations then goes on to help inform the Police & Crime Plan.

Because the Police & Crime Plan is fed by information from members of the public it is a living document and is reviewed and refreshed periodically to ensure it continues to accurately reflect local and national priorities.

What is the current Police & Crime Plan?

The Commissioner has identified the following four policing and crime objectives:

  • Strengthen local policing
  • Work with local communities and partners to keep Sussex safe
  • Protect our vulnerable and help victims cope and recover from crime and abuse
  • Improve access to justice for victims and witnesses

A brief explanation of the plan and its priorities are included in the video above, or you can download the full Plan. If you require a printed version, please contact the Office of the Sussex Police & Crime Commissioner by telephone to: 01273 481561 or by email to: pcc@sussex-pcc.gov.uk

Why does the Commissioner set a Police & Crime Plan?

The Commissioner has a statutory duty to set the policing and crime objectives for their police force area through a Police & Crime Plan.

The Police & Crime Plan sets out the strategic policing direction for our county with objectives for how policing services will be delivered in Sussex up to 2021​​​.
