On Wednesday 13th June the Humber Watch Association held their inaugural regional conference at the Country Park Inn, Hessle.
The event was attended by approximately 70 Neighbourhood Watch coordinators from all across the Humberside Police region along with all four regional support teams, Humberside Police personnel and staff from the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner.
The aims of the event were to provide a networking platform for NHW coordinators to discuss their experiences with like-minded coordinators from different parts of the region. The event also allowed for discussion on particular issues affecting communities in Hull along with suggestions of solutions and examples of best practice. The event provided the opportunity to put anonymous questions to a panel made of of NHW support Steve Lynn, Humberside Police Inspector Tim Harvey, PCC Engagement Officer Claire Welford for discussion on the evening.
The conference used ‘Slido’ to gather instant data by using smart phone technology and enabled the anonymous answering of various questions and polls.
All information submitted and ideas discussed will be summarised and shared with all attendees and Neighbourhood Network members.
We would like to thank all those that attended and hope you found the event useful.
