Issue Date:- 21 April / 22 April 2009


THE 1st ever Liverpool Community Crime Fighters event will take place on 22 April at the Crowne Plaza hotel in Liverpool and we would like to invite all Liverpool residents to attend.  Members of the public will join Merseyside Police, Liverpool City Council and partner agencies to find out what local services are in place to help reduce crime and the fear of crime in communities.  The ‘Community Crime Fighter Programme' was set up following a review in 2008 by Louise Casey, Government Crime and Justice Advisor. The aim is to forge stronger links between the police, courts, local authority, probation and the communities they serve.

Opening up the justice system

Recent reforms to the police and criminal justice agencies have been designed to open up the system and increase public confidence in the police and criminal justice agencies. However, many people still don't know what they can ask for, what they should expect, how to best help others or how to get involved, how to make a complaint or get things changed for the better if they need to.

The Community Crime Fighters scheme will provide those who want to do and know more, with information and training on services they should expect, as well as what they can do if they see problems. This will help them work with their local agencies to tackle crime and help filter information to others in the community.  Speakers will include anti-social behaviour tzar Louise Casey and Assistant Chief Constable Helen King and the event will be hosted by BBC radio presenter Roger Phillips.

Anyone interested in attending this free 1 day event can register by emailing:- or calling:- 0151 225 4817. Lunch and refreshments will be provided.


THE Liverpool public can now have a say in how criminals 'payback' by voting on which Community Payback project should be carried out as a punishment for criminals in their local area.
