Dorset PCC Pays Tribute To West Midlands Commissioner Bob Jones

15th July 2014

PCC Martyn UnderhillI am deeply shocked and saddened by the sudden death of West Midlands PCC Bob Jones, which was announced this morning.

Bob was a straight talking politician, committed to serving the community over many years: as a councillor, the chair of the West Midlands Police Authority and the first Police and Crime Commissioner for the part of the country he loved so much.

Bob and I often had different visions but we respected each other and he always articulated his passionately held views with eloquence and consistency. I will miss his contribution to the world of policing but my thoughts today are with his family, friends and colleagues as they come to terms with this shocking loss.

He will be a hard act to follow.

Regards,

Martyn Underhill
Dorset Police and Crime Commissioner
