Our objectives and values
Working together to protect the public.
We put public protection very clearly at the heart of our work to counter terrorism, cut crime, provide effective policing, secure our borders and protect personal identity.
We want people to feel safe, and confident in their homes and neighbourhoods, so they can live freely, contribute to society and prosper in their daily lives. The Home Office strategy sets out our direction for the next three years for the full range of our work.
Read what we plan to achieve, how we plan to achieve it, and the measures we will use to assess our progress in the Home Office Strategy.
We work with our partners and the public at local, national and international level to:
help people feel secure in their homes and communities
cut crime, especially violent, drug and alcohol related crime
lead visible, responsive and accountable policing
protect the public from terrorism
secure our borders and control migration for the benefit of our country
safeguard people's identity and the privileges of citizenship
support the efficient and effective delivery of justice
The values we developed in consultation with our staff and stakeholders, underpin how we will achieve our objectives, and guide our everyday behaviour:
we deliver for the public
we are professional and innovative
we work openly and collaboratively
we treat everyone with respect
