We are committed to engaging with our communities across Herefordshire, Worcestershire, Shropshire and Telford & Wrekin to increase trust and confidence and to help us protect people from harm.
Our communities are active participants in helping to prevent and detect crime and anti-social behaviour and we know that by working together we can make a real difference.
Public safety, crime prevention and protection of the vulnerable cannot be accomplished by the police alone. It takes effective partnership working and strong community relationships. It is only by the police, our partners and the public working together that we can build resilient and safe communities, and both reduce and prevent crime.
Our Local Policing Charter, launched in March 2021, outlines how we will ensure we provide a visible policing presence and how, using local engagement, social media and new digital channels, we will create further opportunities for dialogue so the public can raise concerns, provide feedback, be involved and help shape policing. Neighbourhood Matters will help us to work with the public and build strong community relationships.
