First Elected Mayor To Take Charge Of Policing

West Yorkshire Police Federation is hoping to forge a good working relationship with the region’s first Mayor when they are elected on 6 May.

Voters go to the polls decide who will be the first West Yorkshire Mayor, who will be responsible for policing in the county.

West Yorkshire Police Federation Chairman Brian Booth said he hoped the new Mayor would continue to meet the Federation on a regular basis, as the current PCC does.

He said: “I would hope the successful candidate would continue to meet with the Federation on a regular basis and listen to our concerns, as this happens currently.

“On a first meeting I would be very interested in their vision and how that may affect my colleagues, and how we could work together to support officers in their difficult role, while providing an excellent policing service.

“We have our first meeting already diarised following the elections and I am looking forward to that.”
