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

Organisational vision, mission and values


Our vision is to ‘Create a Safer Cambridgeshire’.


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. 

Operational priorities

Although every crime is important to us, we have five operational priorities and four organisational priorities:

We will safeguard the vulnerable, with a focus on:

  • Domestic abuse (repeat victims and offenders)
  • Child sexual abuse and exploitation
  • Modern slavery and human trafficking
  • Fraud (repeat victims and emerging trends)
  • Serious sex offences

We will combat acquisitive crime, with a focus on targeting those responsible for committing:
