I can’t help feeling suspicious about the whole thing. The role of the PCC, which is a pretty significant change to how we are policed was created without any democractic involvement. I personally want a police officer running West Mercia not a politician. It is very risky having people with potentially strong political ideology running the police force. To put it quite simply, politicians can’t be trusted. I think this is an attempt by the ruling elite to gain everymore control.
