CHAIRS FEEDBACK

Minutes:

There was One Gold Group this period.

I believe the Stop & Search group met and hopefully we will have some feedback today.

The Safer Neighbourhood Panels still have not met but I believe that they should soon. However, I seem to remember saying that for the last 3 meetings!

Exciting meetings I have participated in this period are: SSCB Serious Youth Violence Action Group day conference on 11th May, Enable’s Open afternoon at Vincent House on 7th June, Hate Crime Executive meeting on 12th June, SSCB on 5th July and most exciting of all 2½ hours on GDPR at MOPAC were we finished with more questions than answers! Under AoB I will present to you a policy that I have written as a result of that meeting.

This has been a slightly quieter period regarding meetings as the Council and to a lesser extent the police were in PURDA for some of it.
