The Police and Crime Commissioner for the West Midlands has spoken to ITV Central about his new role in the region.
Bob Jones became one of nine newly-elected Commissioners across the Midlands, when votes were cast on Wednesday.
The election saw the lowest number of people voting for a peacetime election.
Just over eleven per cent of the electorate turned out across Staffordshire, with Stoke-on-Trent having one of the lowest turnouts in Britain. In the West Midlands 12 per cent of people voted.
Bob Jones, a Labour Commissioner, explained to ITV Central his strategy to drive crime figures down.
