An alternate hypothesis (and it is entirely speculative and does not negate the better detection hypothesis) is that Surrey has a higher level of white-collar crime and the police identify more closely with these criminals on average (eg socio-economically) and that this results in more instances of corrupt release of data. The Met comparison suggest that more than one factor could be at play
