PCC not to appeal High Court Decision

Alan Billings Official

Dr Alan Billings, South Yorkshire Police and Crime Commissioner, has decided not to pursue an application for permission to appeal the High Court ruling against his decision to suspend the former Chief Constable, David Crompton and to call for his resignation.

Dr Billings said: “I will not be appealing the decision.  Instead, I will be supporting the Association of Police and Crime Commissioners in dealing with the constitutional issues raised by the judgement through Parliamentary means rather than engaging in an expensive legal process.

"I don't believe it is in the interests of the South Yorkshire public to commit any further funds and I feel that what South Yorkshire Police needs now is a period of stability.”
