North Yorkshire Police say they have recently been made aware of instances of anti-social behaviour in the Chapelfields area of York.
They want to talk to the local community about what has been happening.
The event has been organised to give residents the chance to voice their concerns to the police and partner agencies.
The police say they want to understand from the residents’ perspective what these issues are so they can put a robust plan in place to tackle them.
The event will take place at Sanderson Community House on Bramham Road in York on Tuesday (12 July 2022,) between 5pm and 7pm.
Representatives from North Yorkshire Police will be joined by the City of York Council Housing team, Neighbourhood Enforcement officers and the Youth Justice Service.
During the evening, officers will be encouraging people to sign up to Community Messenger so they can complete a short survey on the issues that affect them the most.
The survey will be conducted via community messenger but if people don’t have access to a smart device, they will be able to complete this on paper.
North Yorkshire Police Inspector Lee Pointon from the York outer Neighbourhood policing team said:
“This event will help us understand the concerns of residents. It will allow us to further build a relationship with them which is vitally important in helping us tackle any issues moving forward.
“I hope as many people as possible from the local community join us so we can gather an understanding on what the problems are.
“The understanding will help us when working closely with our partners to improve the quality of life for people who live and work in the area.”
