  1. Seems this new Deputy Chief Constable has been employed by South Yorkshire whilst being investigated from her last role.

    Who made this appointment and why?

    Did they know about the ongoing investigation in South Yorkshire or was she “just right” for this force?

Greenwood left police force and then was given a nice little job on Doncaster NHS as Chairman. how many other Senior Police Officers have been given the same sort of cushy little numbers?
