Hernandez survives – for now

Owl can find no reference to this other than BBC News. Might her survival owe itself to a majority of Conservative councillors on the Police and Crime Panel?

“A police chief who suggested gun owners might be able to act as armed civilians in a terror attack, has survived a vote of no confidence.

Devon and Cornwall Police warned armed civilians should not tackle terrorists after the comments made by Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) Alison Hernandez on a BBC phone-in in June.

The vote, held by the Police and Crime Panel, the body which scrutinises her, was defeated by eight to two.”
