In a bid to make police more visible and accessible to communities and reduce the impact of policing on our environment, Police and Crime Commissioner John Campion allocated £25,000 to fund electric bikes for policing teams across West Mercia*.

The bikes will enable officers to police harder to reach areas, such as town centres, alleyways and river and canal paths. The bikes will also help improve police visibility as they tackle community concerns like anti-social behaviour and drug use.PCC John Campion said:

“As Commissioner, I have always promised to ensure that West Mercia Police is as efficient and effective as it can be in tackling the issues that matter most to our communities.

“I have listened when communities have said that they want to see an increase in officer visibility as well as a reduction of the impact of policing on the environment and these additional electric bikes are a great example of this commitment in action.”
