SOUTH Yorkshire's Police and Crime Commissioner wants to raise his profile - as he thinks a third of people don't know who he is.

Shaun Wright was speaking about his role on the anniversary of his election to office - after a poll found one in three people do not know who their PCC is.

A spokeswoman for Mr Wright said: "The poll found 35 per cent of people don’t know who their police and crime commissioner is - but that means 65 per cent do.

"Compared to 12 months ago when the Commissioner was elected, I think that’s quite a leap.

"Yes, he can walk down the street without people knowing who he is, but it’s only one year in, it’s early days, and over the next couple of years things will change.

"It's important they know who he is and what he is doing."

The spokeswoman said Mr Wright’s priorities for next year include improving police visibility in the community, recruiting 650 specials by 2015, and cutting crime and anti-social behaviour.

She said another key priority was protecting vulnerable people.

"This year that was children, next year it will be women, and in 2015 it will be the elderly,” she added.
