Deputy PCC Appointed
The Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) Lisa Townsend has formally appointed Ellie Vesey-Thompson as her Deputy PCC. She will be the youngest Deputy PCC in the country, and is set to focus on engaging with young people and supporting the PCC on other key priorities informed by Surrey residents and police partners. The new appointment comes as Lisa, the first female PCC in Surrey, focuses on implementing the vision she outlined during the recent PCC election. Ellie Vesey-Thompson has a background in policy, communications and youth engagement, and has worked in both public and private sector roles.
In a statement on the surrey-pcc.gov.uk website, Lisa Townsend said that,
“Surrey has not had a Deputy PCC since 2016. I have a very broad agenda, and Ellie has already been heavily involved across the county.
“We have a lot of important work ahead. I stood on a commitment to make Surrey safer and put local people’s views at the heart of my policing priorities. I was given a clear mandate to do that by the residents of Surrey. I am delighted to bring Ellie on board to help deliver those promises.”
