THREE QUATRES of residents believe that West Mercia Police understand issues in their community.

The latest results from the Police and Crime Commissioner John Campion’s quarterly perceptions survery showed that 74 per cent of people felt the police understood issues.

It also showed that confidence in the force was at 82 per cent, although the target is 88 per cent.

Many people said they don’t think anti-social behaviour and crime are an issue in their area- North Worcestershire is at 73 per cent and South Worcestershire has gone from 78 per cent to 76 per cent.

PCC John Campion said: “The latest data shows there is some disconnect between the service received in North and the South of Worcestershire.

“Whilst I understand different areas will face different challenges, it’s important the system is working effectively to ensure all communities receive the high-quality service they expect and deserve.

“As the public’s voice in policing, I remain committed to supporting and challenging the chief constable as well as providing the funding needed to deliver long-lasting change across West Mercia.”


Head of local policing, chief superintendent Edd Williams, said: “Public confidence in policing is vitally important and we are pleased that across the three counties we cover confidence levels remain high.

“Local policing teams carry out fantastic work to keep our communities safe, working with teams and departments across the force to deliver an excellent service and protect people from harm.

“We look forward to continuing to work with local communities to increase confidence and satisfaction levels as well as keeping people informed and sharing the good work on-going in their area.”
