POLICE and crime commissioner Dr Alan Billings has appealed for the views of Barnsley people ahead of setting the council tax precept for policing.

The precept - the amount of council tax allocated towards police and crime services - will be set for the next financial year in April.

The PCC is asking people to comment on how much they would be willing to pay for policing, and the areas of crime they would like South Yorkshire Police to focus on.

Anyone who lives or works in South Yorkshire can fill in the survey, which can be found here
