PFEW reaction to sudden death of PCC Bob Jones

01 July 2014

Police Federation of England and Wales Chair Steve White said:

“Our deepest sympathies are with the family, friends and colleagues of West Midlands Police and Crime Commissioner Bob Jones at this difficult time.

“Bob was a great champion for the entire British police service, both in his time as chairman of the Association of Police Authorities and in his latter role overseeing West Midlands Police.

“During his time as the West Midlands Police and Crime Commissioner he backed a decision to end the forced retirement of long serving police officers, oversaw the recruitment of new ones and fought hard for officers in the midst of difficult times due to policing cuts. He will be greatly missed by the entire police family.”
