John Appoints Community Ambassadors
Police and Crime Commissioner John Campion has appointed his new team to deliver for communities in West Mercia.
Following the appointment of his Deputy PCC, the Commissioner now has a team of Community Ambassadors in place to engage with local communities ensuring their priorities are understood, their needs are being met and their concerns are being acted on. Anyone can contact their local Ambassador to bring issues around crime, safety or policing to the Commissioner’s attention.
The Ambassadors are Graham Oliver for Shropshire, Daniel Guerche for Herefordshire, and Melanie Baker for Worcestershire. The appointment for the Telford & Wrekin area is currently being finalised, with the announcement of the successful applicant due imminently.
John said: “I made a promise that I would be visible and accessible to people right across what is a very large policing area. These appointments will help me understand local priorities and engage with as many people as possible from different areas and backgrounds, whilst delivering better value for public money.
“By re-shaping the structure of my team, I have saved £40,000 which will now go back directly into local communities via a new ambassador’s fund.”
