Police and Crime Commissioner 

Home > Police and Crime Commissioner

Katy Bourne was re-elected (after her first term of office which started in November 2012) by the public in May 2016 to hold the Chief Constable of Sussex Police to account for the performance of the police force, effectively making the police answerable to the communities they serve.
She is responsible for setting the strategic direction and priorities for Sussex Police through the Police & Crime Plan, which sets out the strategic policing direction for our county with objectives for how policing services will be delivered in Sussex up to 2021.

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

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