Every year, Julia Mulligan outlines progress against the Police and Crime plan, and developments in the North Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service, over a 12-month period.

Also included in the reports:
- The launch of a new complaints and recognition team
- Piloting a new public safety service to prevent vulnerability and reduce harm in communities
- More efforts to tackle serial offenders of domestic abuse
- Investment in local, visible policing
- The first open, wholetime firefighter recruitment campaign for ten years

North Yorkshire Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner Julia Mulligan said:
“I hope these reports are a helpful insight into the 12 months between April 2019 and March 2020 – a time largely before the coronavirus pandemic had a significant impact on all our lives.
“There have been challenges, changes and improvements, but most important has been keeping the public front and centre in striving to provide the best possible policing service and fire and rescue service.
“As ever, my thanks go to those within North Yorkshire Police and the North Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service for their dedication, drive and commitment to keeping people safe and feeling safe.”
