Challenging the Home Secretary on Police Cuts

On Saturday 16th I met with the Chief Superintendent at Barnsley police station to discuss a number of issues relating to policing in our community.

It was an opportunity to show my appreciation for the fantastic work our officers continue to do in helping to keep us safe, and hear about their priorities moving forward.

I questioned the Home Secretary today on the Government’s support for our local officers, where I outlined the level of cuts our force has faced, and their concerns that neighbourhood policing may suffer if further cuts are made.
