"I am not a fan of privatisation" said Police & Crime Commissioner for Cheshire, John Dwyer. Over the weekend, John Dwyer has received over 200 e.mails from individuals urging him not to privatise the police.
John Dwyer said, " I will be responding to all the people who e.mailed me individually but I want to make it clear that I am not a fan of privatisation, in fact, I am a big fan of collaboration. I have spent my first two weeks in office meeting many partners in local authorities to talk about developing opportunities to collaborate across support or ‘back office’ functions. I believe we can do things better ourselves if we get our processes right and that we should make the best use of what we have got before we look elsewhere."
I will not consider the privatisation of frontline policing."
