A special meeting to discuss boosting safety and policing in Nuneaton has taken place at Westminster. Philip Seccombe, the Conservative candidate for Warwickshire Police and Crime Commissioner, met with Nuneaton MP Marcus Jones for the important talks at the heart of Government.
On the agenda was lack of policing for community events in the town, tackling drink-related crime and behaviour as well as more support for children at risk and domestic abuse victims.
Mr Seccombe says if elected he wants to cut police spending on translation and backroom staff so to help improve policing in Nuneaton.
Before being selected as the Conservative candidate in October, Philip served in the Territorial Army for 25 years, rising to the rank of Colonel.
Philip said: “I am Warwickshire man through and through and very fond of Nuneaton and that is why I met with Marcus to see how we can make the town safer.
“I was seriously concerned how local parades like Nuneaton Scouts St Georges Day Parade have had to be previously cancelled because of lack of policing and how this has hurt the community.
“If given the honour of becoming Warwickshire’s next Police and Crime Commissioner I want slash the millions spent on costly administration functions so we can resource events like these.”
Marcus Jones said: “It was good to talk to Philip to discuss how to improve safety in Nuneaton and the specific ways we can help community safety and events.
“With his experience as a Colonel in the Territorial Army I know he the skills and experience to make a diligent Police and Crime Commissioner and put resources where they really matter.”
