- Driving more effective collaboration with the two Fire services through joined up Governance
- Reducing the environmental impact of policing

West Mercia Police is made up of hard-working officers and staff; I believe the communities of West Mercia deserve a hard-working Commissioner who is focused on fighting crime and ensuring they are always at the heart of policing.
With your support on Thursday 6th May, we can continue to build a Safer West Mercia.
