Female Boss Cases For Youth Who Came Looking a Job Watch Clip
A controversial police boss has quietly scrapped the post of ‘Youth Commissioner’ after her first two were hit by scandals.
Kent Police and Crime Commissioner Ann Barnes said ‘mischievous and vicious’ newspapers had put a ‘significant burden’ on her young crime tsars.
Her first appointee, Paris Brown, quit and was investigated by police after The Mail on Sunday revealed she had posted foul-mouthed, bigoted messages online.
Replacement Kerry Boyd was suspended when a paper found she had had a ‘close friendship’ with a married former councillor.
Mrs Barnes has now decided to scrap the post. The £15,000 a year saved will now be spent on a Youth Advisory Group.
The demise of her Youth Commissioner comes after Mrs Barnes reluctantly dropped another pet project, a van she called Ann Force 1, which she had used for ‘community engagement’ visits around Kent.
