Kent Police is responsible for policing an area which stretches north to Dartford and Swanley and west to Edenbridge and Tunbridge Wells.
The county covers a number of cities and towns with large areas of sprawling Kent countryside in between.
When it comes to policing we have a number of unique responsibilities. As well as dealing with crime and disorder, our geographic location - between London and Europe - means we have a part to play in both national and international policing.We're the main gateway to Europe through three major ports, the Channel Tunnel, a number of airfields and Lydd airport. We also police one of the most significant coastlines and busiest road networks in the country which includes the M25, M2/A2 and M20.
