Police chiefs rule out merging forces.

THE chief of West Midlands Police has played down speculation about a possible merger with Warwickshire Police. In a BBC interview, Chief Constable Chris Sims, said the force could face some funding cuts, but a merger was not on the cards.

He added that the two forces already worked closely together and West Midlands would continue with its restructure, which will see the 21 operational command units cut to 10 by April.

Keith Bristow, Chief Constable of Warwickshire Police, also threw out the idea.
