Meeting with Other Surrey Organisations to Serve Residents Better
A conference at Denbies Vineyard, but alas nothing to do with wine. I was meeting up with the leaders of other Surrey organisations such the County Council and Health to explore ways of making our services more accessible to Surrey residents.
One subject that came up was Pupil Referral Units (PRUs) - they’re the places where pupils who are unduly disruptive are sent so they don’t disrupt the education of their class-mates. But, nationally, they become easy targets of drug-dealers.
I’ve asked the Chief Constable to work closely with schools and PRUs to ensure that we’re on top of this in Surrey.
