The Police and Crime Plan is the key document that sets out, on behalf of the public, the priorities for South Yorkshire Police for the year ahead.

The Plan is important as it sets out and communicates the policing and crime priorities as the Police and Crime Commissioner see them to South Yorkshire Police, the public, partner agencies, the Police and Crime Panel, the Home Secretary, and others with an interest in how South Yorkshire is policed.

The overall aim of the Plan remains the same, however this year, due to public concerns about road traffic issues, Dr Billings has added ‘travel’ to the aim:

I want South Yorkshire to be a safe place to live, learn, work and travel

This can be achieved by:

  • Protecting Vulnerable People
  • Tackling Crime and Anti-Social Behaviour
  • Treating People Fairly

Each year it is refreshed to take account of any changing or emerging policing and crime priorities and issues that are of concern to members of the public. This year, alongside the previous areas of priority the Plan includes issues around road safety and speeding, violence against women and girls and wildlife and rural crime.
