As part of PCC John Campion’s wider work to put the public’s voice at the heart of policing, a roadshow will be taking place across the three counties giving communities a chance to complete his budget consultation.
Taking place from Monday 18 to Friday 22 December, the roadshow will give residents in West Mercia a chance to complete the consultation in-person and speak to the PCC’s team.
Focused on making good the investment the PCC has already made and making progress in the areas that matter most to communities, the proposed budget will see more visible and accessible police officers, better quality investigations and outcomes, and improved public contact.
From 11am to 2pm*, there will be a PCC stall outside:
Guildhall, Worcester – Monday 18 December (10am – 12pm)
Old Market Shopping Centre, Herefordshire – Tuesday 19 December*
Kidderminster Town Hall – Wednesday 20 December*
Darwin Shopping Centre, Shropshire – Thursday 21 December*
Telford Centre – Friday 22 December (10am-12pm)
Police and Crime Commissioner John Campion said: “One of the biggest decisions I make every year is setting the budget for West Mercia Police and the wider work to support victims and prevent crime.
“As part of that, I make tough choices about the amount of Council Tax you pay to ensure your police force has the resources and tools it needs to deliver on your priorities.
“So, it’s vital that communities across West Mercia have their say. The roadshow is an opportunity to do so in-person alongside my team, with the survey also available online on the ‘West Mercia PCC’ website until it closes on Sunday 7 January.” Find out more information and complete the consultation – www.westmercia-pcc.gov.uk/budget2024.
