The criminal justice landscape is complex and multi-faceted and no single agency is responsible for the system as a whole.  It is vital that criminal justice agencies are unified in their ambition and work together in the most efficient and effective way possible, to improve outcomes both for victims of crime and people who offend.

By working together, we can ensure a better shared understanding, enable cost savings through more efficient ways of working and provide a more joined-up and effective criminal justice system that is better able to focus on justice for victims and offenders.

The Commissioner’s Fund

Here in Gloucestershire, PCC Martin Surl allocates 1% of the overall policing budget to the Commissioner’s Fund, which supports county-based projects that deliver one or more of our priorities. Our aim is to work directly with communities to make Gloucestershire safer.
