Bob Jones, West Midlands first Police and Crime Commissioner dies

Bob_Jones_-_West_Midlands_Police_+_Crime_CommissionerWest Midlands first Police and Crime Commissioner passed away unexpectedly this morning at the age of 59.

What a loss to the people of Birmingham! 

Bob was voted into the job by the Birmingham City electorate on November 2012 competing with 6 others and obtained a vote of 117,388 votes which was 61,703 over the next candidate. This result is a measure of his popularity which he continued to enjoy in his term of office through his obvious integrity and clear thinking.

Yvonne Mosquito, Deputy Police and Crime Commissioner said:  “This is a huge loss to the West Midlands and to policing.  Bob was a dear friend and a deeply committed public servant.   All our thoughts are with Bob’s wife Sarah and his family at this sad time.”
