Each force area in West Mercia has its own dedicated Community Ambassador who represents the Commissioner. These individuals act as the 'eyes and ears' for John and ensure community concerns and issues are fed back and dealt with accordingly.

Anyone can contact their local Ambassador to bring issues around crime, safety or policing to the Commissioner's attention.

The Ambassadors are Graham Oliver for Shropshire, Daniel Guerche for Herefordshire, Sherrel Fikeis for Telford & Wrekin, Margaret Sherrey for North Worcestershire and Phil Grove for South Worcestershire.
