The Police and Crime Commissioner has taken part in community events and supported police operations as part of West Mercia Police’s 10 days of Protect.

Protect launched across the force area at the end of October. Since then, the Commissioner has visited police call handlers to see 999 emergency procedures, joined Halloween police patrols in Telford and accompanied officers executing drug warrants in Worcester. Deputy PCC Tracey Onslow has met with Hereford and Worcester Fire and Rescue Service to see examples of blue-light partnership work and joined police patrols in Oswestry.

Police and Crime Commissioner John Campion said “From a personal perspective Protect has reinforced and enhanced the understanding I already had, of what the police do to keep our communities safe. The range of work, skills and expertise needed every day is astonishing, but I have ultimately felt reassured that we have a committed and professional police service. I hope our communities enjoyed the opportunity to see how the police are keeping us safe every day.”
