The Police and Crime Commissioner has pledged to ensure that the Communities across Herefordshire, Worcestershire, Shropshire, Telford and Wrekin who are at the heart of Policing in West Mercia, once again have the opportunity to shape policing priorities as he launches his annual survey.

The Commissioner’s fourth Town and Parish Council Survey, engages local views around police visibility and accessibility, and crime and disorder. In previous years the survey has helped to identify issues including road safety, drugs and fly tipping, which are of most concern to local people. This year’s survey will focus particularly on West Mercia Police’s Local Policing Charter ensuring the force are achieving their commitment to keeping people safe and making them feel safe.

Commissioner John Campion said “It is my responsibility to ensure, everyone from all corners of our communities, has a voice and it’s heard at the highest level. This is just one of the many tools I have used, and will continue to use, to ensure concerns can be heard and be acted upon, as we have done in previous years. The recently launched Local Policing Charter, is an example of how the force and I, have listened to communities and are taking action to improve the service the public receive. I would encourage communities to take advantage of this opportunity to be represented.”

The survey will be shared with Town and Parish Councils throughout the West Mercia area, and will be open until mid August. The findings of the survey will be published in due course.
