South Yorkshire PCC election result


Alan Billings has been elected as South Yorkshire’s new police and crime commissioner.

Nick Alston, national chair of the Association for Police and Crime Commissioners, said: “Police and Crime Commissioners across the country look forward to working alongside Alan Billings to continue to improve policing and help drive essential partnership working to keep our communities safe.

“One of the strengths of having PCCs is that we are elected by local people and are directly accountable to them.

“There is much work for PCCs to do, not only in holding our Chief Constables to account, but also in commissioning and overseeing a whole range of support services for victims of crime, and I’m delighted that the people of South Yorkshire once again have a PCC to perform this important role.”
