PRLog - Jan. 31, 2013 - BARNSLEY, U.K. -- Following extensive questioning by cross-party councillors from the four South Yorkshire boroughs at the meeting of the South Yorkshire Police and Crime Panel held on Monday, 28th January in Rotherham Town Hall, the appointment of Mrs Tracey Cheetham as Deputy Police and Crime Commissioner for South Yorkshire was endorsed and confirmed.

She now takes up post alongside the South Yorkshire Police and Crime Commissioner, Shaun Wright.

Tracey is a Barnsley Metropolitan Borough Councillor and former constituency manager to Barnsley Central MP Dan Jarvis. She is acknowledged with having exceptional and publicly-acknowledged leadership abilities, relationship building and project management experience.

Commissioner Wright said:

“I am delighted to confirm the appointment of Tracey Cheetham as my deputy. There can be no doubt that Tracey will add great value to the Office of the South Yorkshire Police and Crime Commissioner.”

Tracey Cheetham added:

"I’m delighted to have been appointed to the post and look forward to working closely with Commissioner Wright and his team. It’s a new and challenging role and I am particularly pleased that the post offers me a great opportunity of being able to make a difference for the people of South Yorkshire.”


1.   Commissioner Wright has already stated his commitment to working in partnership across a range of agencies at local, regional and national level to ensure there is a unified approach to preventing and reducing crime in South Yorkshire. He wants to ensure that community needs are met as effectively as possible, and he recognises that by building confidence and restoring trust, this in turn will greatly improve local relationships.

2.   The Police and Crime Commissioner, based at the South Yorkshire Joint Authorities in Barnsley, is an elected individual who oversees policing in South Yorkshire (Sheffield, Barnsley, Rotherham and Doncaster). The role of the Commissioner is to be the voice of the people and hold the police to account. The Commissioner does not run the police, as this is the responsibility of the Chief Constable.

3.   The Commissioner is responsible for representing the public within South Yorkshire, cutting crime, reducing reoffending and delivering an effective and efficient police service within South Yorkshire.

4.   The Police and Crime Commissioner replaced the former Police Authority on the 22nd of November 2012.
