There’s only five days left for West Mercia residents to have their say on Police and Crime Commissioner John Campion’s budget proposals.

With the budget consultation closing on Sunday 7 January, the PCC is calling on local communities to have their voice heard on the future of policing across the three counties, if they haven't already.

Alongside making good the investment the PCC has already made to date, the PCC’s budget for 2024/25 will continue to deliver on the public’s priorities: seeing greater visibility and accessibility of police officers, better quality investigations and outcomes, and improved public contact.

PCC John Campion said: “One of the biggest decisions I make ever year is setting the budget for West Mercia Police and the wider work to support victims and prevent crime.

“To ensure your police force has the resources they need to keep you safe, I have to make tough choices about the Council Tax you pay towards policing.

“To inform my decision, it is vitally important that you complete my consultation as I am committed to putting your voice at the heart of policing – as set out in my Safer West Mercia Plan. If you haven’t had your say, please do so before Sunday 7 January.”
