Police chiefs meet students and staff at University of Worcester

Rob George 25th Jul, 2022

SENIOR representatives from local policing visited the University of Worcester for a discussion with students and staff.

West Mercia Police Chief Constable Pippa Mills, and Police and Crime Commissioner John Campion spoke with students and graduates at a round table meeting.

It was a chance to talk about issues or raise questions specific to the student community. The pair also met with senior figures at the University, including the Vice Chancellor and Chief Executive, Professor David Green, and had a tour of the University’s Student Services hub and the Worcester Students’ Union.

The topics discussed with students included reporting of crimes and ways to contact the police, violence against women and girls, diversity and inclusion in the police force and the night-time economy.

Police heard details of a Bystander Intervention programme that the University has been running and its effectiveness.

Launched in 2016, this programme has seen several hundred Worcester students trained to recognise problematic behaviour, violence and abuse, and have the confidence to intervene.
