Jeff Harris (Tadworth, Walton & Kingswood)

Following a successful career in Policing, where one personal initiative was the introduction of CCTV onto London’s Buses, he attained the rank of Chief Superintendent.

Appointed Assistant Director Community Protection for Westminster City Council, he developed and managed a number of community safety initiatives, including integrating the City’s street based services.

A change of career direction took him to youth work where he volunteered and then qualified as a full-time Youth Worker Team Leader with the Prince’s Trust, working with very vulnerable young people across Surrey, South London and Sussex.

Another change of career path took him into a political role as the Deputy Police and Crime Commissioner for Surrey, with specific remit to develop community safety and partnership working.

His successes included ‘CyberSafeSurrey’, ‘Respect and Remember’ and ‘Vulnerable Veterans’.

Currently working with vulnerable people and groups as a Development Coach.

His spare time includes walking his dog on local Commons and distant moors, gardening and photography.

Jeff has lived in Tadworth for 11 years and is married to Patricia (recently retired nurse at the Royal Marsden Hospital), they have 3 sons and 5 grandchildren.

Jeff believes in partnership problem-solving, looking after the vulnerable in our community, and total integrity and honesty in public positions.

Jeff’s four ‘C’s of Conservatism:

· C - Services for the Citizen

· C - The benefits to the  Communities

· C - The needs of the County

· C - The good of the Country
