PCC, John Campion has reached out across West Mercia to talk to some of the most isolated communities in the region about rural crime.
In a series of Rural Focus events, which were delivered between January and March, the PCC has listened to the concerns of rural communities so that action can be taken.
The events, which were delivered to coincide with the launch of the PCCs Rural Crime Strategy, have provided a wealth of crime prevention advice, and given people the opportunity to collect a free SmartWater crime prevention pack and talk to specialist rural and business officers and local policing teams.
PCC, John Campion said, “My Rural Focus Campaign has given some of the most rural communities a platform to discuss the concerns that affect them the most. I want people to be safe, and to feel safe, no matter where they live.
“The events have built on the work I’ve done already; the investments I’ve made in specialist rural and business officers and work to support rural crime initiatives.”
“I have been committed to making sure that voices are heard and to improving the confidence that rural communities have in their police force and to how connected they feel with the service they provide.”
