RESIDENTS living in the West Mercia area have highlighted anti-social behaviour, burglary and police presence as key areas of concern.

A recent survey asked people about their priorities and which areas of policing they would spend more or less money.

Of the 998 respondents, 72 per cent said they feel safe in their local area.

However, 67 per cent said they are worried about the level of crime in their area.

When asked if they would be willing to pay more in council tax to maintain existing levels of service, 58 per cent of people said yes.

The survey was issued by Police and Crime Commissioner John Campion who wanted to hear from the communities he serves ahead of next year’s budget.

He said: “This survey has given me a valuable insight into what matters to people, and where their areas of concern are.

“I want to thank people for taking the time to respond.”
