We run a number of surveys focused on policing and crime in Sussex.

Our surveys help us to make sure we learn from our actions, strive to enhance the service we deliver and share praise/thanks to officers.

We use online, telephone and SMS (text) based surveys. You may have received a call from our own in-house telephone researchers or a text from either:

  • 07537410040
  • 07860058819

We also commission Social & Market Strategic Research (SMSR) to conduct telephone surveys. SMSR is an independent social research practice that works across the UK on a range of social issues such as community safety, housing, health and policing. The staff employed for our calls are police vetted and the company is also on a Home Office approved list of suppliers.

Participation in any of these surveys is purely voluntary. We do hope you will be able to take part if you are contacted.

If you wish to check whether or not the call/email/text was genuine, please email [email protected]

We will get back to you as soon as possible however please note this inbox is not monitored 24/7.
