Philip Seccombe is the police and crime commissioner for the Warwickshire Police force area.
A chartered surveyor by trade, Philip has a strong grounding in public life, having been a Conservative councillor on Stratford-on-Avon District Council since 2002. He currently remains the ward member for Ettington.
Philip also served with the Territorial Army for 25 years, commanding his Regiment and reaching the rank of Colonel. He received the Territorial Decoration (TD) for his long service. He still maintains his military connections as chairman of the West Midlands Reserve Forces and Cadets Association and as chairman of the Warwickshire Army Benevolent Fund.
His key priorities are to ensure that police are properly equipped, trained and motivated to protect the public and bring offenders to justice, while maintaining high visibility among local communities and strong support for victims of crime. He has also pledged to cut red tape and find new efficiencies enabling frontline policing to be boosted, with increased numbers of police officers, PCSOs and Specials across Warwickshire.
His term of office runs until May 2020.
