WEST Mercia Police is seeking people's views on how the public can contact them and access non-emergency police services across Worcestershire.

The force is reviewing the ways in which the public contacts officers and wants to hear how residents and traders feel.

A consultation is running until Friday October 29.

The force says the review aims to ensure it stays efficient and cost effective, adapts to different ways in which people contact and engage with the police, and meets the changing needs of communities.

A spokesman for West Mercia Police said: "We would like to hear views and the consultation will inform decisions around our provision of services to the public and then how we communicate any changes to our communities.

"The consultation should take around five minutes to complete and responses are confidential."

The survey, Accessing Non-Emergency Police Services: Public Consultation, can be accessed via the West Mercia Police website.
