North Yorkshire crime plan consultations for older people
OLDER people are encouraged to take part in a consultation on a draft police and crime plan.
Hambleton Over Fifties Forum and Richmondshire Senior Forum have organised two meetings on the proposed policing plan for North Yorkshire, put together by the Police and Crime Commissioner for the county, Julia Mulligan.
The organisations have said residents who are not online may be finding it difficult to access the plan and give their response, so they have organised meetings in Reeth and Thirsk for older people in the community to view the plans and respond.
The first meeting will be held on Monday, March 11 in the Methodist Church Hall in Reeth from 2.30pm until 4pm and the second will be at the Friends Meeting House in Thirsk on Thursday, March 14, from 2pm until 3pm. People can discuss the plan with a police representative at the meeting.
The consultation period will last until March 18 and people can access it online at www.crimeplan.org.uk.
There are other crime plan consultations taking place throughout North Yorkshire.
The next will be on Friday, March 8 in Stokesley Town Hall from 10am until 11.30am.
On Monday, March 11 there will be a two-hour meeting at the Lower Town Hall in Northallerton from 11am and on the same day at Stokesley Leisure Centre from 1pm until 2.30pm.
On Friday (March 8), Mrs Mulligan and York MPs Hugh Bayley and Julian Sturdy will be listening to people’s views on crime in North Yorkshire at an event at the Guildhall in York from 2pm.
Mrs Mulligan will begin with a short presentation on the plan, followed by an hour of questions from the public.
