About Surrey Police
The establishment of a single, unitary police force for the county of Surrey has evolved over more than 150 years. Over that time the Force has coped with numerous amalgamations, secessions, reorganisations and boundary changes.
Surrey covers 644 square-miles, with one county council, 11 boroughs/districts and six clinical commissioning groups with five major hospitals.
It has 62 motorway miles, including the busiest M25 stretch. Surrey’s rivers include the Thames (notable flooding risk); the county is 73% greenbelt. Surrey borders the UK’s busiest two airports.
It is the most densely populated county in SE England, having increased in population by 8.8 per cent since 2001 to 1.2 million. 9.6 per cent of the reported population is from black and ethnic minority communities, varying from 16.4 per cent in Woking borough to 4.0 per cent in Waverley.
It has the fourth largest Gypsy, Roma and Traveller community in the UK.
Surrey’s universities have 24,000 students.
