Surrey Police needs improvement

Inspectors have found that Surrey Police needs to improve in how it responds to the public.

His Majesty’s Inspectorate of Constabulary and Fire & Rescue Services graded the force’s performance in a total of nine areas.

The inspectorate found that the force answered 77% of 999 calls within 10 seconds, below the target of 90%.

Surrey Police said it took the issues raised by the HMICFRS “very seriously”.
