Crime Prevention Event – 23 November Calderdale

The Trust held its Second Event at Calderdale on 23 November. Richard Whitehead (District Police Commander) & Lesley Hill Director of Planning, Performance, Estates & Facilities co-launched this event.

We would like to thank the following organisations.

There are many types of crime that affect the Trust and the wider community including violence; anti-social behaviour; security preparedness; terrorism; criminal damage; theft and fraud. Work to tackle crimes needs to be jointly led and co-ordinated for it to be most effective.

Key Messages
