The Office of the Police Crime Commissioner, Kent

Matthew Scott was elected Kent’s Police and Crime Commissioner in May 2016 to set Kent Police’s priorities, hold the Chief Constable to account and commission services for victims and witnesses across Kent.


One of his key priorities is making sure that people suffering mental ill health in Kent get the right care from the right person. It is estimated that 33% of Kent Police’s time is now spent dealing with individuals and cases involving mental health illness, and Mr Scott believes that trend is not sustainable, so he is commissioning services that reduce pressure on policing due to mental health, and has created a Mental Health and Policing Fund to allocate funding to support schemes and/or projects that reflect his commitment to this issue.

Mr Scott is also the deputy spokesman for mental health issues for the national body, the Association of Police and Crime Commissioners.
