PCC Martin Surl

I was elected as Gloucestershire’s first Police
and Crime Commissioner in November 2012.

My role is to tackle crime and to improve
community safety in an efficient and effective more

The police and crime plan

My brief from the Home Secretary is to cut crime but I want to go beyond that. I want there to be less crime, of course, but I also want to tackle antisocial behaviour – things that aren't regarded as crimes but which blight our communities – and in doing so make Gloucestershire an even better place to live and work.

In order to achieve that, I produced a Police and Crime Plan based on my own views and experience and what Gloucestershire residents told me they wanted before the first election.

In the most simple and clear terms, the mission of the Police and Crime plan is:

'Less crime, more peace and good order'
