Teens can be troublesome, but police helping.


7:23am 27th January 2011

Police in Tadcaster have launched a support service for parents of teenagers.

With funding from Selby District Council, PC Liz Hartley and PCSO Kelly Vause of Tadcaster Safer Neighbourhood Team, have set up ‘Youth Watch’ to provide guidance and advice to parents.

PC Hartley said:

“Parents with teenagers can often be faced with situations where they don’t know where to turn for help or advice. With this in mind, we have set up the Youth Watch scheme to help and support parents".

PC Hartley and and PCSO Vause will be holding drop-in sessions once a month at Rosemary House, Rosemary Row in Tadcaster between 7pm and 8pm. They will be on hand to offer advice and guidance and deal with any concerns parents may have relating to issues including drugs, alcohol and anti-social behaviour.

PC Hartley added:

“We will offer advice and guidance regarding any concerns raised and will also carry out various presentations on issues which pose a risk to young people”.

There are many organisations which can offer support to parents who are experiencing difficulties with their youngsters and Youth Watch can put parents in touch with such organisations.

PCSO Vause added:

“Youth Watch is a good way for parents to stay connected with a young person’s world and allow them to come together with other parents and share experiences, information and advice.”

Tadcaster Safer Neighbourhood Team takes pride in partnership working for the benefit of the community, partial funding for this project has been provided by the Community Safety Partnership of Selby District Council.

Youth Watch will be held on 27 January, 24 February, 24 March, 21 April, 19 May and 16 June.  For further information please use the following emails: or
