POLICE and Crime Commissioner John Campion will be on the menu at the Ludlow Food Festival.

Mr Campion says he is looking forward to hearing from communities through a programme of summer events across West Mercia.

The Police and Crime Commissioner and his team will be attending large public events that will give communities the opportunity to talk to him about concerns and local issues.

People will also be encouraged to have their say on policing in their area, as well as the police estate, through consultations, both of which are running until July.

Mr Campion will be in Ludlow on Friday, September 9, the first day of the Food Festival.

“I’m looking forward to getting out again this summer with a larger programme of events, after having a couple of years of not being able to,” said MrCampion.

“I’m committed to ensuring that the public voice is reflected in policing, so opportunities like this are invaluable.

“This year I am specifically seeking feedback around the police estate, as well as understanding community concerns and priorities ahead of setting next year’s budget.

“However, I would like to talk to people about anything they wish to raise with me. If you’re planning on coming to any of the events, please drop by and say hello.”

Police and Crime Commissioners are elected every four years for each police area.

They do not have any role in operational issues.
