Unison police staff will urge the West Midlands Police Authority on Thursday to vote against massive spending cuts, writes John Millington.
The union wants West Midlands police to vote against spending £533,000 of public money on the next phase of the Business Partnering for Police Project which embeds the private sector in policing.
Unison regional organiser Charlie Sarell praised the "top-quality" service police provide to the public, adding that profiteering would put quality and reduced crime figures at risk.
Mr Sarell said: "The proposals as they stand at the moment are vague and unclear, but what is clear to Unison is that further private company involvement in the West Midlands police would be for financial gain.
"We feel, as do many members of the public, that police should benefit the public and not be used as a way of making money," he said.
