  • Information provided to the Community Safety Partnership

Police and Crime Commissioner Martin Surl said, “When the first full-time, professional police force was formed almost 200 years ago, it was based on the principle that the power of the police comes from the consent of the public as opposed to the power of the state.  "The relationship between police and the public is a vital one and I know from what people in Gloucestershire tell me, they are proud of their Constabulary. “However, the police must never take that for granted and I hope that by inviting the public to see the range of responsibilities we have and the extent of services we provide, will not only maintain that connection but also help foster an even better understanding. “There is no doubt that in these difficult and dangerous times, our officers and staff are truly grateful for the interest and support of the people of Gloucestershire”.
