Giving a Day to Policing

Yesterday I had the pleasure of spending the afternoon with West Mercia Police as part of #giveadaytopolicing, where I joined PCs Sarah Kent and Richard Rees on their patrol around Droitwich to see first-hand how they are helping keeping residents safe.

It was an informative and insightful afternoon and very timely given the recent announcement that 20,000 additional police officers are to be recruited over the next three years.

I hope a number of those new recruits will be joining West Mercia Police to support them in their work, becoming part of our capable and dedicated Police force in Worcestershire.
