COMMUNITY police in Tadcaster are to dedicate one day each month to working with council officers in an attempt to deal with the “issues that matter most to the local people”.

PSCO Kelly Vause said: “Having a joint approach to dealing with these issues will see a faster resolution to problems and it will help to keep officers up to date on what’s happening in the area.”

Dominic Richardson, Access Selby community officer, will be working alongside colleague Ruth Beckwith as part of the scheme. He said: “Selby District Council has always had a good track record of working closely with the police in Tadcaster to deal with key community issues.

“But the creation of the new community officer roles within Access Selby has given us a great opportunity to strengthen our partnership and build on this.”
