Vote Labour’s David Jamieson in the WMPCC by-election!

Following the sad death of our Police and Crime Commissioner Bob Jones, a by-election has been called for Thursday August 21st – two weeks today. We have chosen David Jamieson to be our candidate – a former Transport Minister who also has experience of being on the Police and Crime Panel.

In a recent letter to citizens, David Jamieson writes:



This Government will have cut over 1,500 West Midlands Police Officers by next March. Little wonder that some types of crime are once again on the increase. But in the 2 years since Bob Jones was elected he started up recruitment again with 450 new Police Officers going on to the beat. I will carry on Bob’s proud record of recruiting Police Officers, keeping them on the beat and I will not allow the privatisation of core policing services.



My promises to you. I will:

*Recruit Police Officers, despite the Government’s cuts;
*Keep Police Community Support Officers, as they provide vital support to Police Officers;
*Protect Neighbourhood Policing Teams;
*Stop the privatisation of the Police, by ensuring they are accountable to the community, not to company shareholders;
*Make sure that police officers are on the beat, not behind a desk.

We appreciate how inconvenient it is to have a by-election in the middle of August, but your votes matter to us, and they matter to the quality of policing in our region. So turn out, vote, and tell a friend!
