Police and Crime Commissioner

Philip Seccombe was elected as the Warwickshire Police and Crime Commissioner in May 2016 to serve a four-year term.

Philip, who is a chartered surveyor, has a strong grounding in public life, having been a Conservative councillor on Stratford-on-Avon District Council since 2002.  He also served with the Territorial Army for 25 years, commanding his Regiment and reaching the rank of Colonel.  He still maintains his military connections as chairman of the West Midlands Reserve Forces and Cadets Association and chairman of the Warwickshire Army Benevolent Fund.

Outlining his vision for policing in the county, Philip has six priorities which will form the backbone of his new Police and Crime Plan:

  • Equipping our police to make sure they have the right equipment, are trained and motivated with the latest tools and technology to make policing more efficient and effective.
  • Protecting communities by building strong relationships with other partner organisations who play a role in reducing crime and anti-social behaviour, bringing criminals to justice and protecting local communities.
  • Increasing police numbers - including police officers, PCSOs and Special Constables - by ensuring that Warwickshire Police secures value for money in everything it does, finding new savings through better procurement and reduced bureaucracy.
  • Supporting victims of crime by launching a new Victim's Charter to ensure that those affected by crime can have the confidence that they will always be put first and receive appropriate support for their needs right across the criminal justice system.
  • Increasing police visibility through a renewed focus on neighbourhood policing to deter crime and reduce the fear of crime.
  • Protecting the frontline by reducing back office bureaucracy and red tape to free the police to fight crime and ensure that, when crime does occur, victims receive a quick and efficient response.

He has also emphasised his continuing support for the alliance with West Mercia Police, while stating his desire to ensure that Warwickshire retains its own Chief Constable and separate identity, while continuing to explore other opportunities for collaboration.
