Deputy appointed by new crime boss

Warrington Guardian: John Dwyer John Dwyer

A MONTH after being appointed as Police and Crime Commisioner for Cheshire, John Dwyer has appointed a deputy so he can ‘perform duties effectively’.

Margaret Ollerenshaw, who was previously chairman of the Police Authority before it was disbanded in favour of the commisoner role, has been given the job.

She will be paid £22,500 for a one year contract working an average of three days a week.

Mr Dwyer said: “It quickly became clear to me that in order to perform my duties effectively I would need a second in command.

“Margaret Ollerenshaw was the obvious choice.

“This is a twelve month appointment to enable me to fully understand the scope of this new and challenging role and to see how the Government’s proposals for the role continue to evolve.

Mrs Ollerenshaw said she was ‘delighted’ with the appointment.

So after nobody voted to fill a position that nobody knew about, a deputy that nobody has been appointed to help the person do the job which was supposed to be "one person being in charge of policing". Two or three more deputies and they can have a board.

Some people can only dream of £22.500 per year for working "SEVEN" day, never mind three.

What a useless waste of tax payers money!!

considering the police are facing cuts and Cheshire Police has lost staff how can the PCC justify paying a part time role so much? a full time officer who we need could have been paid that salery.

“This is a twelve month appointment to enable me to fully understand the scope of this new and challenging role and to see how the Government’s proposals for the role continue to evolve.

The man stood for election saying he was the old deputy chief of Cheshire who understood policing which made him the best person to fulfil the role, a lie then going off his quote? When's the next election

Only 75k , how will he scrape by on that (and his pension from when he was Deputy Chief Constable) - perhaps we should organise an appeal for the poor chap!


I thought you lot were in favour of cutting public expenditure - not finding new ways to increase it.
