    The elections on 15th November of Police and Crime Commissioners for Surrey and elsewhere are very important (as are all elections for public office). The Commissioner will have wide-ranging powers over policing in Surrey (and the very large budget which goes with it!)

    We should all make sure we use our vote on 15th November – it’s part of our democratic right and duty.
