Local Policing Committee to Visit Wakefield

Local Policing Committee Visits Wakefield

Wednesday, 01 September, 2010

West Yorkshire Police Authority is taking its Local Policing Committee out into the community again and visits Wakefield in September.

The Local Policing Committee looks at how neighbourhoods are being policed and that the Force is meeting the needs of all communities and the doors are open to members of the public.

In May the Committee took to the streets of Leeds for the first time visiting the Leeds Metropolitan University and due to the response from local residents the meeting is being held in public again.

The meeting takes place at St Catherine's Church and Centre, Doncaster Road, Wakefield, WF1 5HL and starts at 10.15am on Friday 10th September and everyone is welcome to attend. It is expected to last for 2 hours.

During the meeting members of the committee will receive a presentation from the Force about Operation Northdale, an intiative which sees police, partners and volunteers working together to reduce the number of sexual offences in West Yorkshire towns and city centres.

Operation Northdale has been running over the Christmas and Summer periods for the past two years and has resulted in a 71% reduction in the number of sex offences.

The committee will also be looking at the efficiency savings which can be made by officers using Blackberry devices whilst out on patrol to send important information, thereby reducing their need to head back to their station.

At the end, a question and answer session will take place and anyone will be able to ask questions of the members about the work they do, how they scrutinise the Force and about anything they have heard in the meeting.

Chair of the Local Policing Committee, Brenda Lancaster said: “Following the success of the committee meeting in Leeds we decided it was important to again bring it out into the local community. By doing so we are able to demonstrate our scrutiny of the Force to the people we serve.

“The topics on the agenda will be of interest to most people, since we are looking at how the force provides a service in all neighbourhoods.

"The question and answer session at the end of the meeting will give anyone who attends a chance to ask about anything they have heard and about the work we undertake on behalf of the public.”
