Force collaboration

To adapt to budget cuts and continue working efficiently, many of our teams work together with other neighbouring police forces, such as Bedfordshire Police and Hertfordshire Constabulary.

We maintain our local and frontline policing services so that we can support and protect our residents when they need us most. 

Vision and priorities

Chief Constable’s mission and values

Cambridgeshire continues to be one of the fastest growing areas with an expected population growth of a further 25 percent by 2031. Despite this, Cambridgeshire remains one of the safest counties in the country due to our focus on safeguarding the most vulnerable, supporting victims of crime and robustly investigating and bringing offenders to justice.

We continue to look at new and better ways to deliver a policing service, which includes making the best use of new technology and working to better understand and manage demand to allow us to respond and adapt to the needs of the public and help keep people safe.

Force risk management

Our Risk Issue and Opportunity (RIO) Policy sets out our approach to managing collaborative, corporate, departmental, unit, programme and project risks, issues and opportunities that may affect our objectives.

The policy is intended to provide clarity and transparency across our force, so that our Force Executive Board (FEB) and Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) are clear about our forces significant risks. This is achieved under the direction of the risk review board (RRB) chaired by the Deputy Chief Constable through the force risk manager, force risk officer and departmental risk coordinators.

Force management statement

Our force management statement (FMS) is a self-assessment of the force for Her Majesty's Inspectorate of Constabulary and Fire & Rescue Services (HMICFRS) and explains:
