Liberal Democrat Police and Crime Commissioner candidate Sarah Murray paid a visit to Bromsgrove last Friday to meet local residents in Finstall and Aston Fields. 

Sarah, who lives in Worcestershire and is a Councillor on Worcester City Council, enjoyed learning more about the issues of most concern to voters in Bromsgrove. 

In a recent national survey of Police Forces West Mercia Police sadly came second only to the Metropolitan Police in low morale of its overburdened officers and dissatisfaction with the high percentage of unsolved crimes. With a higher than average number of no attendance at the scene of reported incidents the survey showed that there is room for improvement. 

The election for the role of Police and Crime Commissioner is being contested by Sarah in a bid to improve the service provided by our hardworking but often frustrated police officers and support staff. A new PCC will have the opportunity to focus attention on what really matters to our hardworking police officers and local people, which is a better record of crime solving by the insistence that every reported incident be attended in a timely fashion to ensure as high a success rate as possible in bringing criminals to justice. 

Sarah has years of experience in litigation work and experience in the criminal justice system. She has also campaigned vigorously to end violence against women and girls and she is campaigning to bring liberal values to West Mercia Police Force to help tackle and prevent crime.

Sarah commented: “It was a delight to meet Bromsgrove residents to discuss their concerns. As a Worcestershire resident I see firsthand the impacts that Conservative cuts have had on policing. Our police work incredibly hard to keep our communities safe but they need greater investment and support from the Government.”

Bromsgrove residents can cast their vote for a stronger and more visible police force by voting for Sarah on Thursday 2 May.
