Calls To Scrap Police And Crime Commissioners
8:05am 16th November 2014
More than 300 people sign a petition to scrap the next police and crime commissioner elections in Cornwall.
Critics say it would save £1.8 million.
That is double what it would cost to reopen police front desks.
Pirate FM told you how six have been shut, including Penzance, Liskeard and Bude.
St Just councillor Sue James wants a debate before the next general election.
She said: "Do people really want a police and crime commissioner, do they feel that there is a need for it, or could it be better given to the Chief Constable in order that he can better resource his police service, I'm sure more people would rather be able to go through the front doors of their local police station and have more bobbies on the beat.
"I fear that come 2015 after the general election, by the time everyone shuffles the chairs and gets in their jobs, they will say it is too close to 2016 and we'll have the next election, and that will cost a lot of money."8:05am 16th November 2014
