On 11th May, the Youth Council received a visit from the Kent Police and Crime Commissioner, Matthew Scott PCC. Matthew spoke to the Youth Council about his ongoing work and his key policing priorities.
His role is to set policing priorities for the county, by consulting with the public and putting together a Police and Crime Plan. He then holds the Chief Constable of Kent Police to account for the delivery of that plan. The PCC also sets the council tax precept for policing, is responsible for the overall policing budget, and commissions services for victims of crime and funds community safety projects.
