Police Commissioner in Thirsk To Discuss Crime
8:50am 13th May 2013
Julia Mulligan, North Yorkshire’s Police and Crime Commissioner, will be at the Golden Fleece in Thirsk tonight (Monday 13 May) at 7.00pm to listen to the views of the NFU and their members.
Tackling rural crime is a central part of Ms Muligan’s police and crime plan, and she says she has committed to working with groups like the National Farmers Union to reduce rural crime and anti-social behaviour, as well as increase the number of various rural watch schemes.
The meeting will give local farmers the chance to hear first-hand about her plans for tackling rural crime and anti-social behavior across the county, and will also give NFU members the chance to raise their concerns and get an immediate response.
Julia said, “Rural crime can often be hidden or go undetected, and it is crucial the rural residents and farmers of North Yorkshire get the same services as elsewhere in the county.”
“Whether it be by recruiting more Special Constables to patrol rural areas, or by working better regionally to stop cross-border crime, I am committed to reducing rural crime.”
“Meeting with local farmers and working with the NFU more widely is a great way to find out what is really happening in rural North Yorkshire, and I am looking forward to the meeting on Monday.”
