"I have taken on the role of faith patron because I clearly see the potential of working with faith communities in Sussex. They play an important role in building stronger and safer communities; helping to reduce crime, and support the vulnerable with projects such as street patrols in our town centres. I look forward to leading Sussex Police's engagement with all faith groups, and in working alongside these groups to improve our service to all during these challenging times for policing."
Chief Superintendent Howard Hodges, Equality Patron for Faith Equality work in Sussex Police, who works alongside Equality Champions for the major faith strands: Buddhist, Hindu and Sikh; Christian; Jewish; Muslim. We also have a Multi Faith lead.
Priority areas in service delivery for faith equality include community engagement, community tensions, and awareness of hate crime reporting. Gaining insight on public experiences is central to developing our approach.
A key part of this work involves engaging with people in our communities and regular consultation with our Multi Faith External Reference Group (ERG).

For internal consultation, we have an organisational Interfaith Forum to assist with progressing our priorities. This includes identifying any gaps in policy and procedure regarding faith, belief or lack thereof.
