Mental health in the spotlight at Public Accountability Meeting

North Yorkshire’s Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner is asking for people to get involved in her next monthly public accountability meeting.

The session, on Tuesday 25 June, will focus on mental health.

Public accountability meetings are broadcast live online with members of the public invited to send in their comments before or during the session.

At this meeting, the Chief Fire Officer and Chief Constable will report on how they are working to reduce the effects of mental health with their staff, and more widely, how mental health issues are impacting on the delivery of their services.

The Chief Constable will also report on how the police are tackling burglaries across North Yorkshire.

As well as watching the live broadcast, the public are also invited to ask their questions during the meetings via Twitter by including #NYscrutiny in their tweets.

Commenting on the public meetings, Julia said:

“These meetings give members of the public and staff the opportunity to understand the performance of both services and hear what they are doing to keep us safe and feeling safe.

“I encourage everyone to join in and watch, and if you have a question, please ask it.”
