Warwickshire police to join forces in cost-cutting move
BUDGET cuts will see North Warwickshire residents 'benefit' from a dedicated police service under the direction of a local superintendent.
With a joint reduction in operating costs totalling more than £30m to be met, Warwickshire and West Mercia Police have joined forces to deliver policing services across both communities.
Members of both police authorities have approved a four-year Appliance Plan to deliver a 'high-quality, value for money' service with policing reorganised and delivered jointly across seven geographical areas. The new policing areas are North Warwicks, South Warwicks, Herefordshire, North Worcestershire, Shropshire, South Worcestershire and Telford and Wrekin with each district led by a Superintendent responsible locally.
Each force will continue to be led by a Chief Constable and deputy Chief Constable and retain its own identity.

By further streamlining, Warwickshire Police hope to meet a budget cut by 2015/16 of £10.2m.
