Police and Partners To Share Progress In Tackling Serious and Organised Crime

Monday, 21 October 2019

Representatives of agencies from across West Yorkshire will come together tomorrow (Tuesday) to share their efforts in tackling Serious and Organised Crime.

The event entitled ‘Prevent, Protect and Prepare in the Environmental Age’ has been organised by Bradford Inspector Michael Cox and will feature speakers from several partners, including those based in Bradford and some further afield.

Among those speaking at the event at Valley Parade are BD3 United, a collaboration of voluntary organisations and Bradford Council, who have been working with young people in the area to steer them away from crime. Holmewood Moving Up, who have been carrying out similar work in the BD4 area, will also be talking about their efforts in this field.

The rest of the programme includes inputs from West Yorkshire Police’s cyber prevent team and Breaking The Cycle - a police and youth services joint programme which offers bespoke interventions for young people.

The event will be opened by Bradford District Commander, Chief Superintendent Osman Khan.

Inspector Cox, said:

“We are committed to working with partners to provide intervention programmes to steer young people away from serious and organised crime in West Yorkshire and this event will give just a snapshot of our ongoing work in this area.

“I hope that those attending will find the inputs useful and that some may even take away the good practice to see how they can develop it for use their area of business.”
