Candidate calls for scrapping of deputy PCC post in West Mids

THE Conservative candidate for therole of West Midlands Police and Crime Commissioner says he will scrap the role of deputy PCC to put the £60,000 salary into frontline policing.

Jay Singh-Sohal says he will reduce office costs and focus on ‘more police, less politics’.

Mr SinghSohal said: “We will soon have an opportunity to elect a new PCC who will invest in frontline policing ahead of his own multi-million pound office in Lloyd House, and I am the only one committed to cutting politics and bureaucracy to invest into tackling rising crime.

“Residents, who already feel deeply disconnected with both policing and the Commissioner, will expect nothing short of change, and I have a plan to bring the strong leadership and focus needed to make people feel safer and more secure.”

The West Midlands force area saw a second year of significant increases with the 2021/2 funding settlement boosting the budget of West Midlands Police to £655m.
