I would like to congratulate Julia Mulligan on her re-election.
The role of Police and Crime Commissioner is an important one, as the Commissioner sets the strategic direction for the Force and holds the police to account on behalf of the public. At North Yorkshire Police we are always striving to provide the best service we possibly can for our communities, so we welcome that constructive focus on the public’s priorities for policing.
We look forward to working with Julia in her next term of office to deliver our shared ambition: which is to provide the public of North Yorkshire with the police service it deserves.
