Have your say in Commissioner Zoë’s June Public Accountability Meetings

Commissioner Zoë Metcalfe will host her monthly Public Accountability Meetings on Thursday 23 June and is encouraging people across North Yorkshire and York to get involved.

As well as receiving the latest updates from North Yorkshire Police and North Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service, there will be a focus on Out of Court Disposal and we will hear about a day in the life of North Yorkshire Fire and Rescue.

Broadcast live online, the meetings aim to make the emergency services more accessible and anyone with questions can submit them in advance to info@northyorkshire-pfcc.gov.uk .

Zoë said:

“I always want to make sure I am asking the questions you want answers to, which is why these Public Accountability Meetings are so important.

“They will allow me to find out more about the work of the police and fire and rescue service, and put the focus on topics which are important to residents and businesses across York and North Yorkshire.

“Please join us to watch either live or at any time after on the website.”

For the second time, there will be two meetings, with a half hour interval, between them.

The agenda, along with presentations and reports, are available on the Commissioner’s website where you can also find details on how to watch live and submit a question or catch-up after the meeting.
