Police and Crime Commissioner John Campion wants to hear from communities regarding their contact with West Mercia Police and visibility of police officers.

The next assurance and accountability session, on Friday 28 July, will see the PCC putting questions and concerns to Chief Constable Pippa Mills regarding two of the public’s policing priorities.

The session will focus on questions submitted by the public on the visibility and accessibility of police officers in their community and the experiences of those who have had contact with West Mercia Police and the service they received.

To ensure questions are captured across the three counties, there are a number of ways they can be sent in simply and easily before 12pm on Thursday 27 July.

These include:

  • Posting a comment under relevant posts or sending a direct message to any of the PCC’s social media channels on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or LinkedIn (@westmerciapcc)
  • Emailing [email protected]
  • Responding to the Neighbourhood Matters email, sent by the PCC to West Mercia Police and Crime Commissioner subscribers on the platform

Police and Crime Commissioner John Campion said: “The subject of police accessibility and visibility, and contact with the police, is a top postbag item for my office. As your voice in policing, I am committing to ensuring your concerns are heard.

“In my role as PCC, I have listened and delivered on calls to increase officer numbers, which are now at record levels in West Mercia, and ensured the force has the resources and tools it needs to improve the service they deliver to residents. However, these benefits need to be seen and felt by communities.

“I am therefore encouraging people to submit any questions or concerns so I can gain a greater understanding around where I can support and challenge the force to continue making a real difference that will benefit communities across West Mercia.”

The public assurance and accountability meeting will be filmed and made available following the meeting.
