Julia Mulligan holding open meeting and surgery in Pickering.

Residents from across Scarborough and Ryedale have the chance to raise concerns or compliments about crime and policing when the Police and Crime Commissioner for North Yorkshire, Julia Mulligan, comes to the town later this month.

Julia is holding an open Town Hall style meeting with an open Q and A session, taking place between 1pm-2pm on Friday 22nd August 2014 at Pickering Memorial Hall, Potter Hill, Pickering YO18 8AA. Members of the public can attend, listen to a talk by Julia Mulligan and have a chance to ask her any question they would like.

An appointment based surgery will then take place between 2pm-3pm, at the same location, giving residents the opportunity to raise personal or private issues, good or bad, on a one on one basis. Surgeries are by appointment only.
If you would like to book some time with Julia – or for further information about other Surgeries – please telephone 01423 569 562 or email info@northyorkshire-pcc.gov.uk

The following message received from the North Yorkshire Police Community Messaging Service:

North Yorkshire Police has launched an on-line app to help you make sure you don’t become the victim of burglars. BurglarProof is a quick and easy step-by-step guide to help you assess your home’s security. A quarter of all burglaries are carried out by opportunist thieves taking advantage of an unlocked door or window. Homes that don’t have basic security devices, such as window locks and sturdy door locks, are far more likely to be broken into.

BurglarProof features:

  • a comprehensive home security self-assessment tool
  • a holiday checklist to give you peace of mind when you’re away from home
  • video tips from North Yorkshire Police officers
  • in-depth guides giving you professional, detailed advice on every aspect of home security

Tom Stirling is the Digital Media Officer for North Yorkshire Police who developed the BurglarProof web app. He said: “We developed the app in response to a number of burglaries at insecure properties, which have occurred during the recent spell of warm weather. The aim of the web app is to make checking your home’s security as easy as possible. At North Yorkshire Police we are taking advantage of the latest developments in technology, and using innovative ways of employing it, to help people prevent themselves becoming the victims of crime. The app has been developed at no cost to the force. So if only stops one person from becoming the victim of crime, it has been a worthwhile effort.”

Detective Chief Inspector Paul Sweeting, said: “This app is a great way for people to ensure that their homes are as secure as possible. I urge people to download the app and take the security survey, to help secure their homes from thieves.”

To access the app, visit the NYP App Store at www.northyorkshire.police.uk/appstore  or visit burglarproof.nyp.mobi from any smartphone or tablet.
