Police and Crime Commissioner John Campion is set to host a Facebook Live session on 1 November to discuss community concerns over firearms licensing. The virtual event aims to offer a platform for the public across West Mercia to voice their opinions on the performance of the Firearms Licensing Unit (FLU).

Scheduled to run from 6:30pm to 7:30pm, this community conversation follows John Campion's recent expression of serious concerns about the FLU's declining performance. Chief Inspector Callie Bradley from West Mercia Police will also be present to outline the work of the FLU and answer questions from the public.

John Campion stated: “I hear regularly from residents, business owners, MPs and councillors about the current delays. The Facebook Live session builds on the successful Community Conversation event which took place in Herefordshire, allowing communities across West Mercia to get involved. I look forward to talking to and answering the public’s questions on Wednesday 1 November on the West Mercia PCC Facebook page.”

Questions for the session can be submitted in advance by emailing [email protected], or they can be asked live during the event on the 'West Mercia PCC' Facebook page.
