POLICE are set to hold a community engagement event in York following reports of anti-social behavior in the area.
North Yorkshire Police have recently been made aware of cases of anti-social behavior in the Chapelfields area. An event was therefore organized to give residents the opportunity to express their concerns to the police and partner agencies.
Police want to understand from the residents’ perspective what these issues are so they can put a solid plan in place to address them.
The event will take place at Sanderson Community House in Bramham Road in York on Tuesday July 12 between 5-7pm.
North Yorkshire Police Inspector Lee Pointon, of the York Outer Borough Police Team, said: “This event will help us understand the concerns of residents. I hope as many people as possible from the local community will join us so we can understand what the issues are.”
Representatives from North Yorkshire Police will be joined by York City Council‘s Housing Team, Neighborhood Law Enforcement Officers and the Youth Justice Service.
During the evening, agents will encourage people to sign up for Community Messenger so they can take a short survey about the issues that matter most to them.
