Facebook: Philip Seccombe PCC



I was honoured to be selected to stand as the Conservative candidate in October 2015, and have been visiting towns and villages across the county since. I am very keen to act as a “Champion” for all residents and represent their views on Policing and Crime.

I will hold the Chief Constable to account, prepare and agree a Policing Plan, and allocate the necessary resources to ensure the Plan is carried out.

I am keen to see the numbers of Officers, PCSO’s and Specials increase, so that residents can be assured that their safety is my prime concern and purpose. To achieve this, I have a six point plan:

  • Ensure our Police are properly equipped, trained and motivated
  • Increase the numbers of Police Officers, PCSO’s and Specials across Warwickshire
  • Free the Police to fight crime, by cutting red tape and prioritising the front line
  • Support the victims of crime by working closely with local agencies
  • Increase Police visibility throughout the County
  • Bring criminals to justice to protect our local communities

As PCC I will always put people before politics, and with my experience as a Warwickshire businessman, an ex- Commanding Officer of my Regiment and 14 years of being a local councillor, I understand how both local communities and large organisations expect unbiased advice and direction from the PCC.

I look forward to directing the Police to tackle all forms of crime in Warwickshire, whether it be violent, fraudulent, speeding, anti-social behaviour or any other crime being suffered, as well as putting the victim first.

I look forward to receiving your vote on May 5th, so I can begin this important job.
