PCC Welcomes New Police, Fire and Crime Commissioners
In response to today's announcement from the Home Office that three more PCCs are to be allowed to take on the governance of their local Fire and Rescue Service, David Lloyd, Police and Crime Commissioner for Hertfordshire, said:
“I want to send my congratulations to the PCCs who will become Police, Fire and Crime Commissioners, and are taking forward this important piece of government legislation.
“I await the decision from the Home Office on my proposals for joint governance of police and fire services in Hertfordshire. My view remains that we can only achieve the benefits of closer joint working and the best shared use of resources through a single strategic body.
“I hope this can be resolved soon and we can start making the improvements to public safety set out in my business case.”
