Katy Bourne - Sussex Police Commissioner

Katy Bourne has been the the Conservative Sussex Police and Crime Commissioner since winning the inaugural election in Sussex in November 2012. 

Katy's role is to hold the Chief Constable of Sussex Police to account for the performance of the police force, effectively making the police answerable to the communities they serve.

She is responsible for setting the strategic direction and priorities for Sussex Police through the Police & Crime Plan.  This includes setting the police budget and local police precept – the amount residents pay for policing in their council tax.  She also has a statutory duty to commission support services for victims of crime and to deliver community safety initiatives including restorative justice and crime reduction grants.
