PCC sets out 2023 plans

Solihull Editorial 8th Jan, 2023   0

AS THE new year starts, West Midlands Police and Crime Commissioner has also re-doubled his pledge to reduce violence against women and girls, with the Safer Streets campaign, alongside Victims’ Commissioner Nicky Brennan, forming a major part of this work.

He is also working with Assistant Police and Crime Commissioner, Tom McNeil, on important campaigns, such as tackling loan sharks and lobbying for new laws on private e-scooters.

Alongside Assistant Police and Crime Commissioner, Wasim Ali, he is also focused on tackling car thefts, improving road safety and working alongside Youth Commissioners.

The PCC said he is also ensuring the force is Carbon Zero by 2035, with the roll out of 68 new electric police vehicles.

He said: “You can expect more of these eco-friendly cars and vans in the future. It is a tough target, but one I am confident can be achieved.”

“There are major challenges coming, mainly in the form of finances, trust and confidence in policing and ensuring the force is representative of the people it serves.

“But I am confident, that working alongside the new Chief Constable, Craig Guildford, we can and we will, do what it takes, to ensure justice, safety and security for the people of the West Midlands.”
