In the first of two videos recently re-elected Suffolk Police and Crime Commissioner Tim Passmore discusses his recent re-election and the key issues facing the county. The main themes that emerged from his conversations with residents include reducing crime, town centre management, rural crime, combating organised crime, tackling fraud, and supporting young people. Tim highlights the importance of visibility, accessibility, and engagement in the new policing model for Suffolk. He also emphasizes the need for investment in fraud prevention and the support of young people to prevent crime and provide them with opportunities.


  • Reducing crime and improving visibility are key priorities for Suffolk Police.

  • Rural crime, including plant and machinery theft and livestock worrying, is a significant concern in Suffolk.
  • Combating organized crime, particularly county lines trade, is a focus for the police.
  • Tackling fraud requires greater investment and collaboration between national and local policing agencies.
  • Supporting young people and providing them with opportunities can help prevent crime and exploitation.
