Philip Seccombe, the Conservative Police and Crime Commissioner candidate for Warwickshire, has officially launched his plan to deliver lower levels of crime and safer communities.
It follows Mr Seccombe having met with Home Secretary, Theresa May, as well as the county’s Conservative MPs; Jeremy Wright, Craig Tracey, Nadhim Zahawi, Chris White, Mark Pawsey and Marcus Jones.
Philip’s six point plan for a safer Warwickshire includes; ensuring police are properly equipped, bringing criminals to justice, increasing police visibility, supporting victims of crime, cutting police red tape, and increasing the number of officers across Warwickshire.
Commenting Philip Seccombe said: “My six point plan has been devised after talking to elected representatives and communities up and down Warwickshire and I am convinced it will help make our county safer.
“Warwickshire needs a competent and capable Police and Crime Commissioner and I have 25 years of experience in the Territorial Army which will help me. I’ll also work proactively with Government to tackle the issues that matter.”
Home Secretary Theresa May launched the national campaign last week and heard from voters about their policing priorities.
Home Secretary Theresa May commented: “Electing the right PCC in May is vital to people making sure their policing priorities are heard.
“Nationally, the Conservative Government has protected overall police spending for the next four years and reformed policing to make forces more accountable, effective and better value for money for local taxpayers. This means every force will have the resources and powers they need to keep on cutting crime.
“Vote Conservative for a PCC who will work effectively with the Government to ensure your police force uses those resources and takes the right steps to deliver lowerlevels of crime and safer communities.”
