PCC delivers commitment to protecting frontline as police officers are recruited
The West Mercia Police and Crime Commissioner is backing a drive to recruit new West Mercia Officers.
The drive which opens on Monday (18th June), supports the PCCs vision to protect frontline policing numbers and prioritise more resources into communities. Diverse applications are encouraged to reflect the communities West Mercia Police protect and serve.
Commissioner John Campion said “The public want visible, accessible policing focused on resolving the problems in our communities. I am delivering this by protecting the frontline, bolstering police numbers through this recruitment drive and prioritising resources to keep our communities safe.
“The level of interest is already encouraging, and we expect a high standard of applicants who reflect the diversity in our communities, and will deliver the quality service our communities deserve.”
Martin Evans, Assistant Chief Constable of West Mercia Police said “Policing has changed over time but it remains one of the most challenging, unpredictable yet utterly rewarding jobs I know.
“A career with West Mercia Police is one that I recommend to anyone who wants to make a positive difference every day to the lives of the people in their community.”
