Consultation on emergency service collaboration

I entirely understand why the government is consulting on the future of Blue Light collaboration. Across our public services we have got to be more efficient. I am clear that closer working between Essex Police and Essex County Fire and Rescue Service should be fully explored.

There are areas of our county where police and fire teams already collaborate well and share buildings. The ambulance service raises more complex challenges because of the close working with hospital trusts, and the fact that we have a regional, East of England, ambulance service. 

Ultimately, our aim must be to deliver the most efficient and effective services possible for the people of Essex.

I welcome this consultation.

Nick Alston, Police and Crime Commissioner for Essex
