West Mercia communities given platform to raise concerns
As Police and Crime Commissioner, John Campion promised to be visible and accessible to communities across West Mercia, in his mission to be the public voice of policing.
Listening to the views of local communities takes many forms. Over the last four months, 19 question and answer surgeries have been organised, giving communities a platform to raise their questions about local policing to the Commissioner in person.
Along with other measures in a continued drive to reduce crime and make homes safer, free SmartWater property marking kits were given out. Rural and Business officers and local policing teams also on hand to offer crime prevention advice and reassurance.
The Commissioner said: “West Mercia is a large area, and as Commissioner, I have made it a priority to get out and meet as many people as possible. It is not only important that I am able to hear views first hand but also work with the community to address any concerns.
“The support the public have for West Mercia Police never fails to amaze me and I am grateful to everyone that attended the surgeries. I will continue to work with West Mercia Police and communities to ensure that they feel safe and their priorities are reflected in the priorities for West Mercia.”
