Publicity drive over new role

Have your say

A SERIES of awareness raising sessions are to be held across South Yorkshire to explain about the role of the new Police and Crime Commissioner to be appointed in November.

The commissioner will replace the South Yorkshire Police Authority in holding the police force to account.

Bill Wilkinson, of the police authority, said: “This will be the biggest reform in policing for more than a quarter of a century, so we are ensuring we get out into the community to highlight the forthcoming role.”
