Regional PCCs and Chief Constables in Dorset
Director General of the National Crime Agency, Keith Bristow, today met with regional Police and Crime Commissioners and Chief Constables at Winfrith, Dorset.
Avon and Somerset Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) Sue Mountstevens and Chief Constable Nick Gargan attended the regional meeting hosted by Dorset Police and Crime Commissioner Martyn Underhill, alongside Deputy Chief Constable James Vaughan.
Regional PCCs and Chief Constables from Avon and Somerset, Dorset, Devon and Cornwall, Wiltshire and Gloucestershire all reinforced their determination to develop a powerful group to ensure that the region stays amongst the safest in the country. It will also be a strong voice in lobbying for resources.
Sue Mountstevens said: “It was great to hear from Keith Bristow about the work of the National Crime Agency and hear his commitment to working with PCCs and police forces across the South West.
“Only by all PCCs, Chiefs and crime agencies working altogether can we ensure policing in the South West is effective as possible.”
The group, who meet monthly, considered a new matrix of collaborative initiatives and Chief Constables will now spend some time assessing priorities on an operational and efficiency basis.
The next regional meeting will be held on October 14 in Exeter.
