Reacting to the announcement of the new Home Secretary, West Midlands Police and Crime Commissioner David Jamieson, said:
“I’d like to congratulate Sajid Javid on his appointment as Home Secretary. After a period of damaging chaos at the Home Office we need a period of calm leadership to reassure the public and to re-establish trust.
“I am also extending an open invitation to the new Home Secretary to see the impact police funding cuts have had on the force.
“I am also keen to show him the innovative new projects the force is undertaking under my leadership to tackle the scourge of drugs and to divert young people away from crime and violence.”
