Commissioner Commends West Mercia Officers in Hurricane Recovery Efforts

The West Mercia Police and Crime Commissioner has commended five West Mercia Police officers who have travelled to the British Virgin Islands to support recovery efforts following Hurricane Irma.

The officers volunteered to help, knowing the desolation and limited resources they’d be faced with and flew, last week, alongside another 49 officers from eleven other forces. They will patrol the islands and assist the British Islands Police in policing duties.

Commissioner John Campion said “I am proud of West Mercia’s officers, and officers from across the country working together and offering cross border support at a time of crisis.

I am very proud that they have voluntarily put themselves forward, to help those who need it the most. These are highly skilled and experienced officers, who will be able to apply their approach to keeping West Mercia safe, by helping the most vulnerable in areas affected by this natural disaster.”
