It’s in your hands – #WMidsPCC hustings

West Midlands Police badgeCuts, privatisation, victim support, business fraud, gang crime, antisocial behaviour – we all worry about crime and we all have an opinion on what the priorities should be for policing in the West Midlands.

So, what do you want to see the new Police and Crime Commissioner doing about it? What improvements do you want to see across the county? How do you know which candidate stands the best chance of achieving what you want and what’s best for West Midlands Police?

Our recent post Remember, remember – the 15th of November outlined Labour candidate Bob Jones’s profile and now, with the official launch of the Home Office’s awareness campaign yesterday and the elections just five weeks away, the hustings are getting under way. Go along to one of these events and make sure the candidates know what matters to you.
