The public rightly expect the police to protect them by using their powers in an
effective and fair manner. When police officers use their powers disproportionately – in differing proportions on different community groups – it causes suspicion among some communities that they are being unfairly targeted.

We are committed to being transparent with the Surrey public about how officers' use of specific powers - notably the use of force, and in stop and search - is monitored and scrutinised.
