COMMUNITY CRIME FIGHTERS COMES TO LIVERPOOL
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
calling:- 0151 225 4817. Lunch and refreshments will be provided.
