North Yorkshire police and fire chiefs to give live update on coronavirus response

North Yorkshire police and fire chiefs will give an update on the work they are doing in response to the coronavirus pandemic, and take questions from residents and businesses, in a live broadcast tomorrow (Tuesday 21 April).

North Yorkshire Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner Julia Mulligan will lead the live update and will be joined by:

  • Chief Constable Lisa Winward – North Yorkshire Police
  • Chief Fire Officer Andrew Brodie – North Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service

Watch live on YouTube:

Members of the public are invited to watch the meeting from 1.00pm on Tuesday on YouTube and submit questions in advance by emailing [email protected], posting on Twitter using the hashtag #NYscrutiny or commenting on Facebook. Not all questions will be able to be used, but they will inform the Commissioner’s questioning and the general discussion.

Ms Mulligan has decided in these uncertain times that there should be a regular update on the coronavirus response direct to residents and businesses, and this is the third of those broadcasts.

These updates replace the regular public accountability meetings which are an opportunity to ensure the police and fire service are performing as well as possible to keep North Yorkshire safe and feeling safe.
