Project Begins Seeking Community Feedback on Local Policing
Communities across West Mercia are being asked for their views on local policing, with a new project from the Police and Crime Commissioner now underway.
Town and parish councils across Herefordshire, Shropshire, Telford & Wrekin and Worcestershire are being surveyed on a range of subjects, including the visibility of local policing, relationships with officers and local crime priorities. The survey is open now until the 6th of July 2018.
John Campion said: “I promised I would engage with our local communities and give them a strong voice on the issues that matter most to them. This project is one of the ways I am delivering on that promise and I hope as many councils as possible take part”.
“Our town and parish councils are extremely well connected to the issues that matter most to the communities they serve. Their feedback on local policing and crime will help inform priorities for myself as well as our police force. It will also help identify where and how local police relationships are working well, or if they can be improved.”
Links to the survey are being circulated by Associations of Local Councils. Postal versions are available on request from the PCC. Details on how to do that can be found at this link.
