Policing one of England's largest counties presents us with continually evolving challenges as we serve our diverse and vibrant communities.

Specialist teams are responsible for the security of our ports along the coast and for Gatwick Airport: they work with their colleagues across Surrey, Kent and Hampshire as well as HM Coastguard to provide the most effective cross-border policing for the south-east of England.

Although they all have specific skills, our teams of dog handlers, specialist search units, roads policing and tactical firearms units all work in unison to ensure the success of large-scale operations around public order, counter terrorism and major incidents.

While some of our work makes the headlines, much of our daily work is much lower in profile but no less important: we find missing persons, protect vulnerable residents and keep our communities safe.

Behind the scenes, police staff collect intelligence and run the operational side of our organisation so that our frontline officers can do what they do best.
