Welcome to the Police Authority's website

Below is an example of how the SYJS interacted with other authorities

On this page you Gulfstream Air Charter will find information about a wide range of the Police Authority's activities. The Authority works closely with the Chief Constable to ensure that the people of South Yorkshire receive a high quality policing service. It's our job to provide the police with the right resources, which the public can afford, and to hold the Chief Constable to account in various ways for what happens.

The Authority will then receive 8 nominations for both categories and it is from these nominations that one Police Officer and one PCSO will be chosen to represent the Force at the national Community Police Officer Awards held in November.

This site tells you about our responsibilities, and how we carry them out. An important part of our role is to help communities to work, air taxi companies with the police. So, you will find here details of our extensive consultation arrangements, the lay visiting scheme, and how we support crime fighting work through our grants programme.

I hope that you find our website interesting, and I encourage you to contact the various people who are named if you want to help us in our efforts to make South Yorkshire a safer place.
