I know the public want their local police officers, visible at the heart of their community, and I’ve promised to give the tools for the job to make it happen.
This latest investment of £25k in bikes will help ensure our local police will be ever more visible in the communities they police.
The communities of West Mercia continue to indicate that they value seeing West Mercia Police visible in their community and are supportive of the use of bicycles where appropriate.
This funding will ensure that local policing teams have the opportunity to purchase either replacement or new bikes, enhancing the mobility and speed of foot patrols.
It is important that I listen to and act on the views of West Mercia’s communities and this initiative will improve officer visibility and approachability when they’re out in the communities they serve
