police officer holding walkie talkie

Warwickshire Police and Crime Commissioner Philip Seccombe wants to hear from the public about the future of policing in the county, as he launches a major new consultation ahead of deciding how funding should be prioritised in the year ahead.

The ‘Your Police, Your Views’ survey aims to get opinions from all parts of Warwickshire on how local people feel money should be spent on policing and community safety, including what types of initiatives should be financed through grants and commissioned services.

The questions also give the opportunity for people living and working in the county to provide further feedback on policing and community safety, to help understand the Commissioner understand what they feel works well and also what needs improvement.

The results will help inform the budget setting process for the 2021/22 financial year.


In addition to the public consultation, a special online forum for WALC Member Councils is being held on Thursday 17 December. The current and future financial position of Warwickshire Police’s budget and financial pressures will be outlined, and will give the opportunity for parish and town councillors to represent their communities and feedback what they think the local spending priorities should be.


The survey is open now and will run until early January 2021.
