West Yorkshire Police and Crime Commissioner Mark Burns-Williamson will be in Bradford on Thursday for a road safety meeting at City Hall as part of a tour of the county to see the work being done to protect communities.

The visit comes as he launches a 'refreshed' version of his Police and Crime Plan for the area, monitoring the work being done to improve safety by a wide range of organisations.

His plan has been updated to reflect concerns raised by residents and road safety is a new addition to the agenda.

“I recognise that every area of West Yorkshire has different priorities relating to crime and community safety and this week of local launches will reflect this," he said.

“Many priorities remain the same such as reducing burglary, safeguarding people against serious and violent crime, supporting victims and witnesses and better tackling anti-social behaviour and the causes and consequences of crime such as drug and alcohol misuse.

“But more is also being done to work together in partnership to tackle those issues that blight lives in our communities, including individuals and gangs involved in serious and organised crime, including Child Sexual Exploitation and doing more work to get back ill-gotten gains from criminals.

“Partnership organisations across the county will also have a central role to play in the delivery of these local plans and partners have helped set the priorities," he said.
