POLICE bosses are asking Barnsley residents to take part in a survey to help shape the way they work.

The survey, which closes on October 29, asks people about their priorities, what it’s like living in their community from a policing and crime perspective and where they feel spending priorities should be focused.

Dr Alan Billings, South Yorkshire Police and Crime Commissioner, said: “Each year I refresh my Police and Crime Plan to highlight the areas where I would like South Yorkshire Police to focus their activities.

“I am launching this survey to give the public a chance to provide their views so that I can understand their priorities and ensure they are at the heart of the decisions I make.

“These priorities need to reflect what the public tell me are their areas of concern and how the police can help us all to be safe and to feel safe.”
