Police and Crime Commissioner

The Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) is responsible for setting the overall strategic direction for West Mercia Police through their Police and Crime Plan, setting the force budget and determining the precept, commissioning services for victims of crime, and holding the Chief Constable to account on behalf of the public. Commissioners are directly elected by the public and serve four year terms.

In West Mercia, the PCC is John Campion, who stood as the Conservative party candidate in the PCC elections in May 2016. His key election pledges included working towards a reformed, more secure and more reassured West Mercia. He also wanted to ensure the force has the necessary resources, procedures and expertise to do its vital work as effectively and efficiently as possible.

John was first elected as a local Councillor in 2004, and became the youngest ever leader of Wyre Forest Council three years later. He was also elected as a Worcestershire County Councillor in 2005, and at the time of the 2016 PCC elections he was a serving cabinet member within both local authorities. He has also worked in private business and at a high security prison.

John lives in Bewdley and enjoys spending time with his friends and family.
