Stop the Business Partnering for Police Programme

    1. Petition by

      UNISON: West Midlands Police Staff Branch

Your local police force is planning to privatise policing services in the West Midlands including crime investigation, forensics, 999 call-handling, custody and detention and a wide range of police support services.

UNISON, the UK’s leading public service trade union, is opposing these plans because they are flawed, have no proper business case or public support and will lead to:

— Private companies putting profit and shareholders before public need.

— Reduced public accountability as many police services and staff will work for private companies and will no longer come under the jurisdiction of the Independent Police Complaints Commission.

Please add your name to our petition and help us speak up against these plans.

      The privatisation of Police Staff will lead to a much less efficient Police Service. G4S manage criminal tagging. Look what a mess that is in. I rest my case.

      Police Roles are a vital Public Service. They should not be jeopardised by any profit motive. Public Service and protection cannot be properly delivered If is reliant on share values, fickle markets and private profit.
