Priorities

  • Putting victims first - delivering a new victims charter and ensuring the best possible services are delivered on a consistent basis for victims of crime to help them cope, recover, and prevent them becoming a victim again in the future.
  • Creating a more secure West Mercia - reducing harm and increasing safety, particularly for our most vulnerable people. Working with police and partners to understand and tackle the roots of crime, improving community cohesion and being more responsive to emerging threats.
  • Reforming West Mercia - Transforming the police force through a necessary programme of modernisation. Giving hard-working officers the tools and processes they need to do their jobs more effectively and efficiently, securing the best possible value for public money.
  • Reassuring West Mercia's communities - Making sure communities not only are safe, but feel safe too. Ensuring people have faith in their police and their PCC and creating more opportunities for active citizenship - giving people the chance to identify and tackle the issues that matter most to them.
