MP welcomes review of modern day policing

Have your say

a SOUTH Yorkshire MP has welcomed the announcement of a Labour Party review into policing to help formulate new policies.

Dan Jarvis, who represents Labour in Barnsley Central, spent a week on the beat with South Yorkshire Police in September to discover what officers do on a day-to-day basis and the challenges facing the force.

He said he is pleased his party is carrying out a review into policing in the light of police forces facing a 20 per cent cut in funding over the next four years.
