South Yorkshire’s Police and Crime Commissioner Shaun Wright says his first 100 days in the job have been ‘busy and productive’.
Since being elected last November Mr Wright has set out his police and crime budget, spent time preparing a police and crime plan for the county and engaged with the community.
He has announced 400 extra special constables on the streets over the next two years and the deployment of more officers into community neighbourhood policing roles.
He will also be drafting extra officers in to tackle child sexual exploitation.
Mr Wright said: “My first 100 days have been somewhat exciting, and my previous knowledge gained from working as a councillor, Magistrate and with the former Police Authority certainly gave me a good grounding.”
“I am determined to meet and speak with as many South Yorkshire residents as possible so I can ensure they are receiving the police service they want and need.”
He added: ““I promise to be the residents’ voice in policing, and to listen to, and act upon South Yorkshire people’s concerns.”
