Tough task ahead

IN The Press on Tuesday, the negative response to new police commissioners was revealed in many letters, but now we have a new commissioner, we have to make it work or at least use it to make York and North Yorkshire a safer place if we can.

Our new commissioner will have her work cut out to do justice to the lonely post and, after she appoints a new chief constable, she will find the task of serving all the public of such a large area will task all her energies.

Julia Milligan has some experience of police working, which will help, but she will still need time to find her feet and she may meet some resistance in some areas.

May I offer Julia my best wishes and hope for a successful time in office.

As a pioneer she will be expected to show the way and make a difference to all our lives at the same time as proving the Government’s policy to be a wise one even though it has had an unfortunate start.

Dennis Barton, Woodthorpe, York.

Another £70,000 of public money to find Dennis and that will be about it.
As always I stand to be corrected but can do without the spin. Time will out.

Apparently her first act was to stop the use of the mobile speed cameras in the County.
These were the cameras which caught the idiot doing 144 mph on a bike near Selby

I think it would be best used stopping the following crimes...

Cycle mis-use.

Motoring offences.

Pedestrain misdemeanors.

We get them sorted, this letters page will be desolate.

If this is true, they will regret this when the next speeding thug kills a law abiding citizen of North Yorkshire.

We expect the Police to enforce laws that protect us all on the roads and will not allow individuals to override the law of the land.

If this is the case, it's exactly why handing power over the Police to one political person is a bad bad idea. At least committees put the brakes on extremism.
