Constituency Labour Parties and affiliates have re-selected David Jamieson as Labour's candidate for May's Police and Crime Commissioner election.
A Labour Party Spokesperson said:
"David Jamieson has been re-selected by local parties and affiliates as Labour's candidate for the upcoming PCC elections.
"Local parties and affiliates recognised the work David Jamieson has done standing up against unfair government cuts, driving efficiencies to protect important areas like neighbourhood policing and getting West Midlands ready for the emerging crimes of the future.
"During David Jamieson's time in office he has pushed through further reforms of stop and search to make it more proportionate and improved the force's response to those with mental health issues.
"The efficiencies spearheaded by David Jamieson have meant that despite West Midlands Police having faced bigger cuts than anywhere else in the country, all PCSOs will be saved from compulsory redundancy."
West Midlands Police and Crime Commissioner and candidate for Labour in May 2016, David Jamieson said:
"I would like to thank local members, parties and affiliated organisations for the strong support they have shown me. I will continue to work hard to stand-up for the West Midlands by recruiting officers and continuing to drive efficiencies so we can protect the areas that the public value most, like neighbourhood policing and PCSOs.
"I am looking forward to the elections in May where I will be defending my strong record and putting forward my plans for the future of West Midlands Police."
