Sheffield Local News: Your Labour South Yorkshire Police and Crime Commissioner

Dear colleague,

Just a quick email to say I share your vision that: We all deserve to feel safe and secure everyday of our lives without fear of crime.

This is the greatest opportunity to achieve change in our policing. I want to be the person that guarantees these changes will make our area a safer better place to live for everyone.

I believe I would be the best choice to serve you as Police Crime Commissioner for the following reasons;

Proposed original, affordable and realistically costed solutions that will deliver the priorities.

Over 25 years collective senior level experience operating in the Labour Party, health, NHS, housing, policing, education, local and central government.

A former senior civil servant having had direct management of multi-million pound budgets.

Successfully challenged the outsourcing of the South Yorkshire Police Helicopter.

Identified funds from existing budgets to increase police officers in our neighbourhoods.

Resigned from a secure senior management position to devote all my time to delivering effective affordable policing for the future.

Born, lived and educated in South Yorkshire and worked extensively across South Yorkshire.

Ran this campaign with party workers and members, but not funded by Trade Union colleagues even though endorsed by Union members from GMB, UNITE, UNISON and NACODS.

As your Police Crime Commissioner, working with you, my top priorities will be to:

Deliver affordable effective policing plans and priorities.

Reduce and prevent crime and the fear of crime.

Improve police response times and maximise the effectiveness of existing resources and technologies.

Increase visible neighbourhood policing and address anti-social behaviour.

Engage with public, partners, Labour Party members and all four local councils to connect with all communities and victims of crime.

I hope you will consider voting for me as your first choice to be your Labour Party Police Crime Commissioner.

Many thanks for your time.

Kind Regards

Kashaf Walayat OBE

Shortlisted Labour Candidate for Police Commissioner for South Yorkshire
