We're home to a city as well as urban towns and small rural villages, all linked by a large strategic road network - M25, M2, M20 and M26.
We also have Europe’s largest retail and leisure centre - Bluewater - catering for 28 million visitors a year and one of the country's most famous cathedrals in Canterbury.
Needless to say, no two days are ever the same in Kent and we have a large number of specialist teams to help us protect victims, residents, visitors and businesses all across the county.
