OFFICERS in Barnsley are providing a better service to residents across the borough despite an ‘unprecedented’ year, according to the town’s police chief.
Following a survey conducted in November, victim satisfaction across Barnsley is at 92 per cent - a figure Chief Superintendent Sarah Poolman is ‘immensely’ proud of.
She said: “In addition to supporting our communities in the fight against Covid-19, our focus throughout the year has been to continue to improve the service we provide to our communities by reducing crime, providing a better service to victims and bringing offenders to justice by improving our investigations and outcomes.
“I am therefore extremely grateful this year, in particular, for the commitment and resilience of our officers and staff, but equally for the help and support given by members of the public who demonstrate incredible acts of bravery and selflessness.”
