West Mercia police to end alliance with Warwickshire police

Recommended Posts

PCW

West Mercia Police are going to pull out of an alliance with Warwickshire Police which they've been in for five years. 

West Mercia Police's chief constable and police and crime commissioner say the move is to be "more effective and efficient" in what they do and to save money.

When the alliance started in 2013, the aim was for both forces to save £30m by 2015 and cut hundreds of staff. 

West Mercia Police says the alliance will officially end on 8 October 2019. 

However they admit they haven't worked out what will specifically change from the move, such as officer numbers and the "virtual control room" the two forces use.

Sounds a bit like Brexit...

I’m surprised that they have just ended it.

 

I can understand that they may want to reconsider how frontline policing services are provided over such a large footprint but it seems like a no-brainer to share back office functions like HR.

 

It also seems bizarre that they would serve one years notice in-month, so that the arrangement ends during a calendar month.

 

At least they will get rid of the horrid stickers that are just slapped on their battenberg vehicles.
