PCC and Surrey Police join forces to declare support for climate emergency

The Police and Crime Commissioner for Surrey David Munro and Surrey Police have announced their support for declaring a climate emergency.

The PCC has said the Force is committed to regarding climate change as having significant implications for Surrey’s communities and wants to play its part by reducing its carbon footprint in the county.

Surrey County Council declared a climate emergency in July this year and eight of the 11 Borough and District Councils in the county have since followed suit, including those areas where Surrey Police has a significant estates footprint.

The PCC and Chief Constable Gavin Stephens have stated they fully back the move and a strategy is now being developed for Surrey Police through its Environmental Board with the aim of making the organisation carbon-neutral by 2030.

This includes reducing transport emissions and waste and incorporating that strategy into plans being drawn up for the Force estate, including the future move to a new headquarters and operational base in Leatherhead.

Energy reductions targets are also being put in place which will look at a reduction in the use of gas, electricity and water where possible.

PCC David Munro said: “Climate change affects everyone and as an organisation employing over 4,000 people, I firmly believe we have a responsibility in ensuring we play our part in policing to protect the environment we live in.

“Surrey Police has already made a number of changes to go greener in recent years. I want to see us as an organisation build on that momentum and have a clear plan on how we can make our buildings and processes as environmentally-friendly as possible with the aim of reaching our carbon-neutral target by 2030.

“I believe that if we work together with our other partner agencies we can rise to this challenge and do our bit to help create a more sustainable county for future generations to live and work in.”

RMT announces 27 days of strike action on SWR over guard guarantee

Rail union RMT has confirmed that a total of 27 days of strike action will take place in December on South Western Railway.

The union says it's after "the company dangled a potential breakthrough deal in front of the union and then failed to honour it," offering no reasons for the delay.

The RMT also says the company’s "unremitting failure to give assurances that their new operational model won't move to Driver Controlled Operation, with the role of the guard butchered completely, means the union has been left with no alternative but to call further industrial action."

The union has instructed guards, commercial guards and driver members to take the following strike action:

Not to book on for duty from 00:01 on Monday the 2nd of December until 23:59 on Wednesday the 11th of December.
