Tough crime measures unveiled by PCC

Evesham Editorial 16th Jul, 2019   0

A NEW ‘relentless’ approach to tackling serious and organised crime in West Mercia has been proposed by  the force’s Police and Crime Commissioner John Campion.

These include:

Measures to better protect the most vulnerable people in our communities

Ensuring ‘relentless disruption’ and tough, targeted enforcement action against the criminals who seek to harm our communities

Ensuring criminals are stripped of illegal assets and money, and then reinvesting it into our communities

Improved partnership working and information sharing to create a ‘borderless’ approach, and tackle the root causes of serious and organised crime.

“The impact of crimes such as child sexual abuse, county lines drug trades, modern slavery and human trafficking can be devastating,” said Mr Campion.

“They can destroy individuals and damage entire communities.

“We need to better support victims. We need local and national partners to work together more. We need to empower our communities to work closer with the police.

“Most of all perhaps, we need to be very clear that our police will be relentless in disrupting this offending, and bringing criminals to justice.”

The Commissioner’s strategy is out for consultation until August 15 and can be read in full with a feedback option at
