PCC responds to knife crime funding announcement
West Midlands Police and Crime Commissioner David Jamieson has
responded to the government's announcement on knife crime funding.
The PCC said:
"Whilst this doesn't make up for the £175 million cuts West
Midlands Police has faced, it will partially cover the extra
funding needed in the short term. The government needs to ensure
that this money is focussed on the areas that need it most and also
ensure that forces have a long-term funding solution."
