Police and Crime Commissioner, Mayor and Chief Constable meet to discuss shared priorities
West Midlands Police and Crime Commissioner David Jamieson and
newly-elected West Midlands Mayor Andy Street have met to discuss
joint areas of working and priorities for the next three years.
The meeting took place at the PCC's office at Lloyd House in
Birmingham and they were joined by West Midlands Police Chief
Constable Dave Thompson.
After the meeting West Midlands Police and Crime Commissioner
David Jamieson said: "I congratulated Andy on his victory last week
and re-iterated my commitment to work with the Mayor in the best
interests of the people of the West Midlands.
"We discussed our shared approaches to tackling mental ill
health, how we can give young people opportunities to steer them
away from crime and gangs and build on the work I have started to
drive investment into the region.
"In addition we discussed the hearings I have convened to
improve the response to delays on our motorways and the role the
new Mayor can now play to move this work forward."
West Midlands Mayor Andy Street said: "On election I stressed
that I wanted to unite the leadership of the West Midlands. I was
therefore very pleased to have early constructive discussions with
the Police and Crime Commissioner as there are many areas where we
need to work together."
