You may remember that first elections for police and crime commissioners were held on 15 November 2012, and the new commissioners took office on 22 November 2012. They replaced the existing police authority framework.
In North Yorkshire, the Office of Police and Crime Commissioner is led by Julia Mulligan, working with a small team of support staff.
The Office of Police and Crime Commissioner is completely separate from the police as it performs an important, independent scrutiny role.
In North Yorkshire, Julia’s office is specifically responsible for:
- Seeking the public’s views on policing and community safety decisions that affect them directly
- Keeping the public up-to-date and informed about police performance and the commissioner’s work
- Monitoring and scrutinising the performance of the Chief Constable and North Yorkshire Police
Publishing easy-to-access and transparent information about decisions, budgets, performance and governance
- Working with partners to co-ordinate community safety and crime prevention activities across North Yorkshire and the City of York
- Commissioning appropriate services for local people
There’s an opportunity to discuss any crime and policing concerns with Julia Mulligan face to face at:
The Forum, Bullamoor Road, Northallerton, DL6 1LP on Monday 22nd September at 5pm-7pm.
These meetings are by appointment only and are divided into 15 minutes private appointments. To book an appointment either email firstname.lastname@example.org or ring 01423 569562 to arrange a convenient time.
