Have your say

AN MP says failures to control a Deputy Chief Constable’s spending on personal development training underlines the need for fresh leadership at North Yorkshire Police.

Julian Smith, Tory MP for Skipton and Ripon, said: “This latest report from the Independent Police Complaints Commission reveals the complete failure of North Yorkshire Police Authority’s role of making sure that taxpayers’ money is spent correctly.”
