The decision today at the West Midlands Police Authority to defer the controversial ‘Business Partnering for Police Project’ until after the new Police and Crime Commissioner has been elected is great news.
Well done to West Midlands Police UNISON branch on their relentless campaigning.
Charlie Sarell UNISON Regional Organiser said:
“Today the West Midlands Policing Authority has made the right decision. One that will be welcomed by police staff across the West Midlands Police Force who are extremely anxious about their future and by the wider community who value the integrated service provided by both police staff and police officers.The election of the Police & Crime Commissioner in November can now focus on the how policing is provided in the future in the West Midlands”
