MAPPA is no longer run by West Mercia Probation Trust and has passed to West Mercia Police Force this was confirmed to me on the 4th February 2014 by a Mrs Karen Simmonds Head Office Manager at WMPT. You will find that Mr Peter Clark (01905747014)no longer works for MAPPA informed Feb 2014 !!! Although that is what i have been informed by a Mr Neil Slater a coordinator for MAPPA based at West Mercia Police Headquarters (01905332252). This also goes for Mr Anthony Brewerton (19th Feb 2013)who was Strategic Management Board Chair. I wrote to Mr Brewerton in Oct 2013 regards inaccurate information regarding myself which i have had no reply to some six months later. I have written again 15th Jan 2014 & 14th February 2014 asking for a response !!! All i get is there is a new chair and letters have been passed on.
Make your own mind up but this fact is extremely unprofessional and poor??
