Sussex Police and Crime Commissioner Katy Bourne says policing is ‘being transformed’.

Ms Bourne who was recently elected Chairman of the Association of Police & Crime Commissioners (APCC) says the Prime Minister’s announcement that 20,000 more police officers are to be recruited across the country is what is driving the transformation.

She said on Friday: “This week I joined the Prime Minister, Home Secretary and Policing Minister on the new National Policing Board, alongside Chief Constables and other partners, to launch this recruitment programme.

“We all have questions to ask and assurances to seek about this unprecedented and ambitious recruitment drive and I will be working with the APCC team to ensure our local views are represented in these discussions.

“Across the country, many Police and Crime Commissioners and Chief Constables have already embarked on recruiting extra officers so we understand the challenges of attracting suitable recruits and the necessary staff and infrastructure required to train them.”
