OPCC Annual Report 2018-19

By | Local News | No Comments

In his introduction to the Annual Report, the Police and Crime Commissioner for Humberside, Keith Hunter states:

“The work of the OPCC is far wider than oversight of the police. The office has evolved into an organisation that is now instrumental in shaping the whole community safety landscape.

“Our Engagement Officers, based in every local authority area, listen to you and ensure your community voice is factored into service delivery through local partnerships; we have re-shaped our commissioning framework to ensure victims services and those services intended to prevent vulnerable people becoming victims are much more aligned and contribute appropriately; we have assisted with the direction and support of Community Safety Partnerships in each local authority area, so they once again become a key local delivery agent of improved community outcomes.

“The OPCC team are a huge asset in bringing about change and improvements to our communities, whether that be through the creation of new schemes to support volunteer opportunities, by bidding for new monies to increase the resources available to those communities or by identifying, adapting and adopting good practice in any area of their work.

“The breadth of that work is vast and varied and I want to express my gratitude for their critical contribution to the journey we have been on thus far, and for what is yet to come. They should be proud of their part in advancing the cause of creating safe and sustainable communities.”

Living with Water Household flooding Survey in Haltemprice, East Riding

By | Consultations, Local News | No Comments

The Environment and Energy Institute in the University of Hull is conducting a survey to ask residents if they have been affected flooding, what they know about flooding and their main concerns. All responses are anonymous. The aims of the survey are to help Living with Water (a partnership between Hull City Council, Yorkshire Water, the Environment Agency and East Riding of Yorkshire Council) improve awareness of flood protection measures, provide new solutions, and help make people safer.

Last year they conducted the survey in parts of Hull, the results of which will be made available soon.

This year they are conducting a survey of residents in Haltemprice (Cottingham North & South, Hessle, Tranby, Willerby and Kirk Ella). It would be a big help if residents could complete the survey and pass it on to other people.

You can take part in the survey here

The person managing the survey is Sam Ramsden, who will be very happy to answer any questions you may have:  sam.ramsden@hull.ac.uk or 07887 364381
