Our Police and Crime Commissioner

Thursday, February 14, 2013

In November Shaun Wright was elected as South Yorkshire’s first Police and Crime Commissioner. Local MP Meg Munn recently attended a meeting to learn more about his priorities and to discuss her concerns about policing and crime in Heeley Constituency.

The good news is that overall crime is continuing to decrease but there are some areas of concern. These included burglary and some parts of South Yorkshire are currently experiencing high levels of vehicle crime.

Shaun explained that although the budget for the police will be reducing by 7.2% across South Yorkshire, he has taken the decision to protect neighbourhood policing. The number of support staff will be reduced but the number of police officers will remain the same. In addition there will be recruitment of an additional 200 Special Constables over the next 2 years as the South Yorkshire force has a low number compared to other police forces.

Meg said:

“I was pleased to meet Shaun so soon after his election. Constituents consistently tell me that neighbourhood policing is important to them, ensuring familiar faces around their communities and being able to tackle anti-social behaviour. Despite the overall budget reduction I’m pleased that this approach is maintained as it has been shown to be effective in reducing crime and in providing reassurance to the public.

I will be meeting the Police and Crime Commissioner regularly as well as continuing the regular updates from local district commanders.”
