Road safety and domestic abuse were on the agenda at a County Hall briefing for Surrey’s new police and crime commissioner Kevin Hurley.

They were discussed when Mr Hurley and his right hand man Jeff Harris met Surrey leader David Hodge and deputy leader Peter Martin to talk about ways they can continue to work together.

The county council and Surrey Police are running a Drive SMART campaign to encourage road users to abandon selfish habits.

They also work closely together to tackle domestic abuse and a a new campaign to encourage victims to seek help has just been launched.

Mr Hodge said: “The county council and Surrey Police work alongside each other in many ways and the meeting was a really good opportunity for us to talk about issues such as road safety and domestic abuse. Residents tell us speeding is a particular concern and it’s vital people affected by domestic abuse know help and support is available.

“Our approach is all about everyone pulling together as one team, whether we’re the police, a council or a business, so it’s important to continue to build a strong relationship with the new commissioner in the best interests of Surrey’s residents and businesses.”
