17)  Tuesday         9th October, 2007   Independent Custody Visiting Scheme

The Police Authority is seeking applications from the general public for the volunteer role of Independent Custody Visitors for a three-year period commencing on 1st January 2008.  The role requires pairs of visitors to make unannounced visits to police stations to check on the treatment of
persons being held in the cells.  We area seeking to appoint people who care about the treatment of others and who live or work in West Yorkshire and are aged over 18 years.

OBJECTIVES
Independent Custody Visitors (ICV’s) perform an important role, providing an independent check that people held in police custody (not yet convicted of any offence) are being properly treated and their needs are being met.

THE SCHEME
·     The Scheme is operated by West Yorkshire Police Authority, a body independent of West Yorkshire Police.
·     ICVs are volunteers who visit any of the 13 principal custody suites within West Yorkshire.
·     All custody visits are undertaken by pairs of ICVs.
·     ICVs are expected to make a minimum of 24 visits per year (as far as possible spread evenly throughout the year).
·     ICVs are encouraged to make visits anytime during the day or night.
·     All custody visits are made without prior notice to the custody suites.
·     The Scheme is monitored by the Police Authority’s Independent Custody Visiting Steering Group.

VISITING ARRANGEMENTS
Although ICVs may be directed to visit specified Police Stations on rostered visits, in the majority of cases ICVs can choose when and where to visit.
On arrival in the custody suite, ICVs speak to the custody staff about the people being detained. ICVs can only speak to detainees who agree to speak to them.  The discussions with the detainees focus upon their Welfare and rights and entitlements during their detention and the ICVs can
take up issues on the detainees’ behalf.

ICV’s also inspect and report on the conditions of cells, detention rooms, medical rooms, washing and kitchen areas, exercise yards and the operation of CCTV systems.

APPOINTMENT OF CUSTODY VISITORS
Applicants are appointed for a 3-year period and must:-

·     Reside or work in the county of West Yorkshire.
·     Be over 18 years of age (at the time of appointment)

People who are currently working in the criminal justice system are not eligible to apply.

TRAINING
All newly appointed ICVs are required to undertake the following training prior to taking up their custody visiting duties.

·     A one day training course (Saturday- Wakefield).
·     Session on the administrative arrangements of the scheme (mid-week evening – Wakefield)
·     Visit to a custody suite (Mid week evening).
·     Completion of two custody visits in the company of experienced ICVs.

   This training equips the ICVs with the knowledge and skills to be effective in carrying out their role. In addition to the initial training, ICVs are required to attend training Seminars and meetings held during their period appointment.


ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
ICVs may claim travelling expenses for car, bus or train journeys in connection with their visits.

A flat rate payment is paid to each ICV in recognition of telephone expenses incurred whilst making arrangements with colleagues..

If you are interested in applying please contact Mrs Elaine Shinkfield the scheme administrator on 01924 294006/2/1  Or Email
es1@wypa.pnn.police.uk

15) Wednesday 4th July, 2007          Recent Incidents

Dear Co-ordinator

You will no doubt be aware of the recent incidents in London and Scotland, a major counter-terrorism investigation is underway following both attacks. Both devices had the potential to cause mass damage to property but also significant fatalities. Given the county's recent experiences of
counter-terrorism operations we understand these events, though outside West Yorkshire, may have a particular resonance in our communities.
In our continuing engagement with the diverse and vibrant communities of
West Yorkshire I want to set out some specific key messages for the county.
It is re-iterated that at this stage the incidents have not been linked
to any particular community group.

West Yorkshire Police will increase our patrols around key buildings and places of public resort. This will be mirrored across the whole of the UK by every Police Force. Wherever possible this will see local officers in and around premises which may be vulnerable. There is NO information that suggests that any part of the UK is a specific target, but another attack is believed to be imminent. The policing activity is being undertaken to ensure that the public at large are kept safe. THIS IS OUR UTMOST PRIORITY.

We understand that such incidents generate a media interest that at times can cause anxiety in communities. We will continue to work with you and our partners and communities at local, regional, county and national level to provide reassurance and protection.

West Yorkshire Police will continue to robustly investigate hate crime and act swiftly to reassure communities via a visible and local policing service.
Communities working together defeats terrorism, we will play our full part in that aim and seek your continued support.  We need all our communities to be vigilant and to report any suspicious behaviour to the ANTI-TERRORIST HOTLINE ON   0800789321.

Many thanks- Please do not hesitate to contact me should you require any further information or advice regarding this message.

13) Wednesday 23rd May, 2007       NATIONAL DRUGS DAY

May 23rd has been designated by the Home Office as National Drugs Day.
West Yorkshire Police are committed every day of the year to tackle the issues surrounding drugs, but May 23rd gives an opportunity to bring to everyone’s attention the problems to both individuals and communities that drug taking and drug dealing brings.

West Yorkshire Police are particularly interested in:

·     People who are dealing drugs – those people who either pull up in a vehicle in your street/area and immediately attract other people to it for short periods of time – passing items to and from / through vehicle windows.
·     People who similarly arrive on foot and attract lots of people literally swarming around them like bees round a ‘ honey pot ‘
·     Houses in your street/area which attract lots of people at the same time, or a steady stream of people visiting for very short periods of time.
Could these people be dealing in or purchasing drugs, if so police would like to hear from you – basic things like a car number, descriptions of persons& vehicles, any names and times when these activities happen.

The Police yardstick is that drug dealers ought to be in prison and drug users need to be in treatment – but we need to know about dealers & users in order to take appropriate action against them.

Your local Neighbourhood Policing Team is interested to know where the local drug users are using their drugs – this may be indicated by used syringes and lots of burnt tin foil on the floor.

·     Police are also interested in drug users who also drive vehicles – drug drivers pose just as much a threat as those who drink and drive.

Although the 23rd May is a designated day to highlight drugs – West Yorkshire Police are tirelessly working throughout the year with other agencies to improve  the quality of life for people who live in areas like yours and we’re having quite a bit of success. This year West Yorkshire
Police:
·     Have arrested over a 1000 people for drug dealing offences
·     Have taken around £4,000,000 from people involved in drug dealing
Is there someone in your street/area who is living beyond their means and doesn’t appear to have a legitimate income, but still drives around in a ‘flash car ‘. Police have the lawful means to confiscate vehicles which are owned by drug dealers and ‘ bring them back down to earth ‘ by taking their
ill gotten wealth away from them – but we need to know their names and a few basic details to start investigating these drug dealing criminals.
Drug dealers are often more fearful of loosing their wealth and their symbols of wealth than going to prison.
West Yorkshire Police are in a strong position to recover assets from drug dealers - money, cars, and houses – but often need your help to initially identify them.

You can contact the Police by ringing 0845 6060606 or alternatively, if you wish to remain anonymous, ring Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111. Callers are never traced and cash rewards are available.

Dear Co-ordinator,

Neighbourhood Policing has now been in existence for just over two years.
Some of the stated aims are to deliver a tailored service to each
individual neighbourhood. By making contact with key individuals and
seeking feed back from local meetings, we aim to address the issues that
matter most to you. Neighbourhood Policing teams will have Police Officers
and Police Community Support Officers dedicated to working in your area.
Hopefully you already know who these officers are and how to contact them.

Her Majesty's Inspectorate are independent from the Police Service and
their role is to evaluate different aspects of Police service delivery.
Starting in mid April there will be a series of telephone surveys by a
research company acting on behalf of Her majesty's Inspectorate. People are
selected at random. Should you or somebody you know be contacted, do not be
alarmed! Please cooperate and give them your honest opinions. They may ask
about some of the issues that have been mentioned above.

In case that you are in any doubt, there are contact names and numbers
below for your local area. Please feel free to distribute them as far and
wide as possible. May we also remind you that up to date information is
