Police Mergers: a few thoughts
This week, Lincolnshire Police Authority is inviting people to vote by text on whether our county police force should be merged with four other county forces to form a "super" East Midlands force.
Given the headlines and level of debate on the issue so far, it's difficult to see how anyone can make an informed judgement on what's best for our county.
As a member of the Police Authority, we've been wrestling with the idea of merger for some months now and want to be sure that any changes improve policing for the people of Lincolnshire.
I hope the following blogs help anyone thinking of taking part in the text vote.
