New police commissioner answers residents’ questions
Mark Burns-Williamson – the county’s first Police and Crime Commissioner – took part in a question and answer session at the Salvation Army Hall last Thursday.
Ch Supt Kingsman is responsible for day-to-day policing, while Mr Burns-Williamson sets the policing budget and holds the force to account.
The commissioner told residents: “I’m going to be someone that’s out and about most of the time, visiting all parts of West Yorkshire – not sitting in an office in Wakefield.”
