Making the streets of Esher and Walton constituency safer

Surrey Police has recruited 395 additional officers since 2019.

259 of these were recruited as part of the government’s manifesto commitment to recruit 20,000 additional officers, which was exceeded in March 2023.

A total of 70 officers will be deployed in Elmbridge, keeping Esher and Walton constituency safe.

Better street lighting where residents walk home at night

As part of Our Plan, we have highlighted 12 areas across the constituency where better street lighting will help residents feel safe. To help prevent crime and antisocial behaviour, we will work with Surrey County Council to get better lighting in areas where constituents walk home at night.


Surrey Police reach recruitment target early

It was great to hear yesterday that Surrey Police has already reached its target of recruiting an additional 78 police officers in 2020/21. This brings the total number of officers in Surrey Police to 2,072.

Funding boost for Surrey Police

I was very encouraged by yesterday’s announcement that Surrey Police will receive an extra £5.4m from the government next year (2021/22). This is a 4.8% increase compared to this year, taking government funding for the police from £112.2m to £117.6m.

47 more police officers in Surrey

Yesterday, new Home Office statistics showed Surrey Police has recruited 47 additional police officers since the government began its major drive one year ago.
