Keeping Our Streets Safe

Jeremy Quin was not returned to Parliament in the General Election held on 4th July 2024. The information below is therefore historic.

Our area remains one of the safest areas in the country. We are determined to keep it that way. Feeling safe in the communities in which we live and work is of huge importance.

I know that instances of anti-social behaviour and criminal activity can have a huge impact on how safe we all feel.

Under a Conservative Government and Conservative Sussex Police and Crime Commissioner we have a total of 679 additional officers in Sussex.

New systems and extra resources are supporting the policing of our Town Centre- including the newly established Horsham Town Team.

Please see below for updates on keeping our streets safe.
