The Police and Crime Commissioner is empowering communities to help shape the future of policing, across Herefordshire, Worcestershire, Shropshire, Telford and Wrekin.
The Safer West Mercia Plan has been drafted for consultation, outlining the commissioner’s vision to make communities safer. The public are invited to give their views, forming the key priorities for the next three years.
Around 200 people have already had their say, in a mixture of online and face to face consultations, with the opportunity to take part still available for another month. So far priorities raised include visible and accessible policing, a focus on road safety and on exploitation of the vulnerable.
Commissioner John Campion said “My vision focuses on communities, putting victims at the heart of everything we do, reducing crime by tackling offending at the root, making sure police resources are prioritised in order to deliver the best possible police service and ultimately ensuring people are safe and feel safe.
This is your opportunity to have a real impact, making sure your views are heard at the highest level. Your input will help me protect victims and prevent crime, and ensure your community receives services reflective of your wants and needs.”
The consultation is open until Monday 1st November 2021.
