  • The Home Office budget will be cut by 6% in 2015/16 - with the police budget slashed by "less than that", the Chancellor announced today. West Midlands PCC Bob Jones said, "I am extremely disappointed by today's announcement. The further 6% cut to Home Office funding in 2015-16, if passed on in full to policing, means a further £27 million cut to West Midlands Police, in addition to the £126 million we've lost already. This could take the total cut to about £153 million - or over a fifth of the budget - in just five years."

  • Police Credit Union Fundraising

    Posted On 12 Jun 2013

    Some of our building colleagues at the Police Credit Union are trekking in the heat of the desert through the Grand Canyon - in a bid to raise £16,000 for Children Today. Started on the 8th June, the spectacular eight day journey will take the Police CU team through one of the world’s greatest wonders, up and down steep, rocky, mountain tracks and through breath-taking scenery. All have ensured the full costs of participating are already covered and so proceeds from the site all go to helping UK children with disabilities via the Children Today Charitable Trust. Please help them raise as much as possible by making a donation today.
