The Minutes of the last meeting were agreed as a true record. 






PCSO’s Sue Court and Lou Scott provided the meeting with an update of the crime figures in the ward compared to the same point last year.

These figures were down to youths stealing mopeds and urged anyone with a moped to secure them in rear gardens if possible.  


Anti Social Behaviour                         66        51


In July it is planned to have 20/30 officers walking the ward and trying doors to heighten awareness and of leaving doors open in the summer months and making residents more security conscious.


Sue Court then explained about a new initiative called The Herbert Protocol which was taking place.    The Herbert Protocol aimed at reducing the risk to vulnerable people suffering from dementia or mental illness that go missing.     People are asked to go to the website and to fill in a printed or electronic form (electronic is preferable) together with a picture of their loved one; giving places where they may like to go such as where they shop, went to school, where they used to live or what bus they used to take regularly.  The form should then be submitted to the police by email to
force.control@northyorkshire.pnn.police.uk, or alternatively held at home and the answers can be provided over the phone.   When someone goes missing then you need to contact the police operator telling them you have a Herbert Protocol person profile in place.  


Leaflets were available on display at the front of the meeting.  



Q. Has there been any reduction in the number of calls regarding anti social behaviour?

A.  There are not as many calls.



Q.   Has there been any decision about the Public Space Protection Order for West Bank Park?

A.   It will be going forward for a decision to be made in either June or July.
