Proposals to better tackle serious crime and improved victim support have been welcomed by John Campion, West Mercia Police and Crime Commissioner.
The Government made the commitments as part of today’s Queen Speech. Key priorities included new laws requiring multi agency partnership to prevent serious crime, new legislation supporting victims of crime and their family and swift justice for those charged with knife possession.
Police and Crime Commissioner John Campion said “The Government’s commitment shows positive progress for our policing and justice systems not only in West Mercia but nationwide. The improvements, particularly in relation to supporting victims of crimes and their families and preventing serious crime through multi agency collaboration are closely aligned to my own commitments to communities across West Mercia. I am pleased the new measures are being introduced and expect they will help to keep our communities safe.”
