The West Midlands Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) is David Jamieson.
The PCC has an over-arching duty to secure an effective and efficient police force. The PCC has three main roles, which are to:
- Set the priorities for policing
- Decide the budget for West Midlands Police
- Hold the Chief Constable of West Midlands Police to account
The PCC subsidises half the cost of RJ within the West Midlands.
