A recruitment campaign for the 2022 Youth Commissioners is now underway and the age range of those eligible has been extended to between 10 and 25 in an effort to capture the voice of even more young people from across North Yorkshire and York.

Anyone interested in giving their view on policing, fire, and crime, developing leadership skills and representing their friends and classmates can apply to join the Commission.

Deadline for submitting applications - Friday 25 February.

Youth Commission Georgia said:

“The Youth Commission has allowed me to step out of my comfort zone. I’ve had the opportunity to talk to hundreds of young people and listen to their stories. The Youth Commission will continue to be successful as the voice of the youth is the future. It’s been a powerful group and we’ve reached thousands of people through our workshops, and we are looking forward to reaching so many more.”

Ouse and Derwent - notice of laying the rate

Boundary Commission for England - public consultation

Following our announcement in December of the locations and dates for the public hearings during the second consultation phase of the current review of constituencies, I am pleased to advise that the booking system is now open, with details of the specific venue for each location where hearings will be taking place.

Those wishing to make an oral representation at a public hearing are strongly encouraged to book a timed slot in advance. To book, visit the dedicated public hearings page on our website and click on your chosen hearing. You will then be invited to register via the booking platform Eventbrite. A step by step guide for booking via Eventbrite is published on our public hearings webpage. The only speaking slots automatically reserved are on the morning of the first day of the first hearing in each region, for the centrally-designated official spokesperson of each of the qualifying political parties (in England, Conservative, Green, Labour, Liberal Democrat) to present each party's views on our proposals across the whole of that region.

While Covid remains a concern, we plan to take proportionate steps - in line with official guidance - to minimise the risk of transmission, while still allowing these statutory 'in person' hearings to take place. You can find further details in our published Guide to the public hearings, which should also answer most other questions you may have. Should you not wish or be able to attend a hearing in person, however, please be assured that in our subsequent analysis of views, to consider whether and to what extent to revise our proposals, we treat oral and written representations with equal weight.

We currently propose to publish the representations received during the first consultation period on our website at www.bcereviews.org.uk on 7 February. Please note, however, this is to allow people a good opportunity to read and consider their views on these representations before the consultation on them starts on 22 February: because the length of the consultation period is fixed by law, we will not be able to accept or consider any comments received prior to this latter date. 

Kind regards

Tim Bowden

Secretary to the Commission

Phone Calls from Bogus Police Officers

A couple of weeks ago I circulated the below message and unfortunately we are still seeing a large number of reports of victims being contacted by someone claiming to be a police officer. This is the original message:
North Yorkshire Police have received a large number of reports from local residents where they have been called by a male claiming to be a police officer. This 'police officer' goes on to claim they have arrested a person related to the victim who has attempted to buy a television or other high value item using the victim's bank card. The scammer will often give the victim a bogus reference number. The victim is instructed to attend their bank to withdraw money which will then be collected for safekeeping in order to protect them. The victim is further told that they must lie to the bank if they are challenged and say the money is to purchase a car or for building work or some other plausible excuse. This is of course false.
Remember, the police or your bank will never contact you and ask you to move or transfer money. If you receive a call of this nature, hang up immediately, do not engage with the caller. make sure the telephone line is clear (i.e. the scammer is no longer on the line) and call 101.
Please forward this alert onto family and friends.

The fraudsters use a variety of names and these are the most common:
DCI Nelson
PC or DC Mark Andrews
Sgt White or Sgt Wickes

The scam is given 'authenticity' by the fact the victim is given a reference number and told to dial 999. The victim does this without clearing the line and are still speaking to the fraudsters when they think they have called the police

This fraud is resulting in some huge losses for victims and the more residents are aware of this type of fraud the better protected they are.

Is there a location in the Selby District that makes you feel unsafe?

 

  • It could be at a certain point on the walk home from work where the street lighting is out of order.
  • Or maybe there is no street lighting at all?
  • Or maybe youths are congregating, and you feel intimidated.


With the support of the National Police Chief’s Council, The Home Office has launched an online tool called StreetSafe which is to be piloted across police forces in England and Wales.
The tool allows anyone, particularly women and girls, to anonymously flag up public places where they have felt or feel unsafe and say why. It may be due to environmental issues, for example street lighting, abandoned buildings or vandalism and/or because of feeling threatened or at fear of harm in these areas, for example being followed or verbally abused.

It’s important to note that because StreetSafe is anonymous, it shouldn’t be used to report a crime or incident to the police. People should still call 999 in an emergency and all other non-emergency incidents should be reported through 101, or online via the North Yorkshire Police website. But by using StreetSafe, members of the public can anonymously provide information which can be used by police and other agencies help improve wellbeing and safety for communities.

Selby and Ainsty Notice

Burglaries in Selby District

We're urging residents in rural parts of the Selby District to “stay alert” after a number of reported burglaries in the area. Following a spate of reported burglaries on the border of South /West Yorkshire we will be actively increasing patrols in villages within the rural parts of the Selby District.

Last Friday (07 January 2022), we received four separate reports of burglaries. Two were reported in Biggin, one in Sherburn in Elmet and one in Hambleton. A grey golf which was linked to the burglaries was found abandoned in West Yorkshire yesterday (Sunday 09 January 2022) after it failed to stop for officers. This has now been recovered.

We're  asking residents to be vigilant and where possible increase security around their property and vehicles. From the incidents reported to us offenders attempted to gain entry to properties via exterior doors and windows. Listed below are some simple steps that members of the public can take to protect their property:

  • Make your home look occupied by using timer switches on lights and radios.
  • Close and double lock all doors and windows when going out – even if you are only away from home for a short period of time. Popping to the shops or nipping to a neighbour can be all the time a burglar needs to break into your home.
  • Always double lock your doors and windows when you go to bed.
  • Keep all valuables and keys out of sight and away from door, windows and letterboxes
  • If you have a porch light turn it on from dusk 'til dawn
  • If you are working from home, make sure your laptops and electronic equipment are not on view.
  • When not in use, store electronic car key fobs in a security pouch to prevent them being scanned by thieves to open and steal your car.
  •  Make sure that tools and garden equipment are securely put away so that thieves don’t use them to burgle your house.
  •  If you have a key safe, make sure it is not visible to people passing by, but that anyone tampering with it can be seen.
  • Think about installing bollards or gates on your driveway and make sure they are kept locked overnight. These offer a good physical barrier to deter thieves.
  • Don’t advertise that you are away from home on social media.
  • Consider investing in CCTV at home as this can be a strong deterrent for thieves, as well as giving you peace of mind. Keep lenses on CCTV cameras clean and check regularly to make sure they are not obscured by trees, plants or cobwebs.
