A DISCUSSION is to be held about whether senior police officers in South Yorkshire are to keep their company cars.

The county’s Police Authority, which oversees the way South Yorkshire Police is run, funded and performs, is considering removing the company car allowance the Chief Constable and senior command team currently receive as part of their pay and conditions packages.

Scrapping the allowance will make the county’s top ranking officers the most poorly paid in the country.

The Police Authority is currently advertising for a new Chief Constable and is set to meet on Friday.
