Invitation to participate as a member of the Runcorn Community Cohesion Group - 7pm 12 December

Alert message sent 26/11/2019 14:23:00

Information sent on behalf of Cheshire Constabulary

I would like to invite you to participate in the Runcorn Policing Community Cohesion Group.  This used to be known as a Police Scrutiny Panel.  The purpose was to demonstrate openness and transparency to the public and local invite people to scrutinise Police activities.  This maintains confidence and trust in policing actions and allows for feedback, suggestions and ongoing development of local Policing practices.  More to the point, a direct opportunity to open engage directly with us on key issues and exchange views. For example, participants are invited to view stop search records how we record and deal with Hate crime.  Individual cases may be dip samples and overall stats can be examined.
I would also like to use the opportunity to expand and look at adding additional areas on the agenda which are both current and relevant to communities.  The nature of which I would like to suggest we initially meet and discuss specific needs.
The intention is to have a regular group to meet quarterly and to consist of various community representatives across a broad spectrum.  I have initially kept the numbers low, limited to perhaps a dozen or so people, then build on that number to include more participants.  Initially community representatives and then collectively consider inviting some partners to represent housing, Health, local authority.  However this is something I would like the community representatives to agree on.  I am cautious as this is ideally to remain local people and not be taken over as a another multi agency meeting.   

I would ask if anyone receiving this request, if they feel others might be appropriate then please pass this on and ask people to confirm their attendance.  This is just so I know how many persons to expect.
I would ask the group to nominate a community volunteer to be the Chair.  I have invited young people, local people and local business owners.
I would also extend invitations for those willing to accompany Police Officers and spend a shift with them as observers to gain a first hand  insight into the work police do.
The first meeting will take place at Runcorn Police Station
Please direct any questions to myself directly by email, confirm your attendance or pass onto to other interested persons.
Kind Regards
Sergeant  Mark Jenkins
