Call For West Rhyl Community Champions – Crime Prevention

Call For West Rhyl Community Champions – Crime Prevention


Sunday 24th Jan 2021


Local residents in West Rhyl are being invited to join existing Community Champions to assist with a crime prevention initiative.

The scheme is part of the West Rhyl Safer Streets Project, which is led by North Wales Police and partnered by Denbighshire County Council and Clwyd Alyn Housing.

There are currently 10 residents who have joined the team as Community Champions, to provide a proactive approach to tackling environmental, community and social issues in West Rhyl. 

Now North Wales Police and Denbighshire County Council are keen to hear from residents who would like to join the Champions team and assist with the crime prevention work. 

Activities in this Champion role will include the following:

 

 Community Safety Sergeant Beth Jones said: “The Safer Streets project is a great opportunity for the community of West Rhyl and we are keen to hear from people who may have a few hours to spare to help with the project. We would also like to hear from anyone who would be willing to give a short term commitment to the project until March 2021.”

Councillor Mark Young, Cabinet Lead Member for Planning, Public Protection and Safer Communities, said: “This is a great example of partnership working between organisations and members of the public. 

“Anticipated benefits include reduction in crimes; improved public awareness and improved sense of community safety.

“We look forward to seeing this project develop over the coming months”.

If you are interested in becoming a Crime Prevention Champion, please contact Beth Jones of North Wales on 01745 539258 or email Bethan.jones@nthwales.pnn.police.uk by Friday 11th December 2020.

An introductory ‘virtual’ meeting will take place in December for residents to receive further information on the project.
