West Mercia

John-Paul Campion

Building on my track record over the past five years, I have set out my vision for a Safer West Mercia at www.campion4westmercia.com but the key highlights are:

  • Keeping the Communities of West Mercia Safe by fighting crime
    • Recruiting record numbers of Police Officers, focused on fighting crime
    • Protecting the vulnerable, tackling the harm caused by drugs and alcohol
    • Fighting organised crime
    • Tackling violence in our community including against women as well as targeting the perpetrators of Domestic Abuse and exploitation of children
    • Reducing rural and business crime
    • Reducing deaths and harm on our roads
  • Reforming how your money is spent
    • Keeping Council Tax increases lowest in the region
    • Driving more effective collaboration with the two Fire services through joined up Governance
    • Reducing the environmental impact of policing
    • Investing in prevention to tackle the causes of crime
    • Publish weekly key police performance statistics
  • Making sure we feel safe as well as being safe
    • Ensuring the community is at the heart of policing
    • Implementing a Local Policing Community Charter ensuring police are visible, accessible and effective
  • Putting Victims First
    • Ensuring the victims of crime are at the heart of the justice system
    • Training more officers in victim care
    • Promoting use of restorative justice
    • Invest in supporting victims of crime to cope, recover and thrive

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.

Yours sincerely,

John Campion
