YOUTH JUSTICE THEMATIC INSPECTION REPORT pdf icon PDF 452 KB

Presentation by Jackie Di Falco.

Additional documents:

Minutes:

Ms Jackie Di Falco presented the item.

Co-Chair, Mr Simon Crick stated that he would be happy to support the ongoing work regarding stop-and search.

The meeting welcomed the report and heard that:

·      Some internship work was being done with Sony music. A music studio was being used and a workspace was available for use in Bruce Grove. Work was being done with Sony to develop the skills for young people so they could pursue various careers.

·      The work involved a small cohort of young people who were engaged with the youth justice service. The understanding from this work would be taken and applied to a wider cohort of young people. This would involve siblings of young people who had been involved with the youth justice service (or those at risk of offending).

·      Work would be done more closely with youth services and the Haringey Community Gold Service to ensure that a wider group of people were being reached out to. It was hoped that this could be extended as part of the prevention approach.

·      It was important that members of the black community be provided with opportunities and development processes that were not solely related to sports and music (although sports and music was important).

·      The Guest of Honour programme was created to help black men who were seen as successful to speak to a cohort of young people to motivate them to have various careers. The programme and raising awareness of successful black men from various backgrounds should be continued.

·      There were resources in the borough, such as the college of North East London which had great resources for young people.  It’s was worth considering to what extent Further Education providers were part of the wider debate and what needed to be done with such institutions regarding the offers and availability of courses for career paths.

·      It should be noted that the most prolific offenders suffered difficult childhood experiences and that the behavioural scientists had said that the first seven years of a child’s development was key for the long term wellbeing of the individual.

·      Fathers to Fathers had been involved with the workshops. Innovative projects would continue on the basis that the funding and resources also continued.

·      It was worth noting that Ms Jackie Wright, from Tottenham, had placed number 1 on the Black Britain’s Power List and was the Vice President of Microsoft USA.

 

RESOLVED:

That the contents of the report and plan be noted.

MAYORS POLICE AND CRIME PRIORITIES 2022-23 pdf icon PDF 4 MB

Presentation by Joe Benmore.

Minutes:

Mr Joe Benmore presented the item and reminded the meeting that the consultation document had been made available and that responses should be submitted by 10 January 2022.

The Chair queried if the feedback and communities and partners was different to MOPAC’s intended priorities and if it would impact any strategic direction.

The meeting heard that:

·           MOPAC appeared to be most interested in where Londoners placed their interest. There would be an emphasis on violence and improving community relationships.

·           A set-up session or a meeting involving the Community Safety Partnership would be created in order to develop a response.

           

RESOLVED:

That the presentation be noted.

OPERATION BOXTER pdf icon PDF 574 KB

Presentation by Inspector Scott Mason

Minutes:

Inspector Scott Mason presented the item.

The meeting heard that:

·      Full intelligence checks were carried out on the women being dealt with to check where they were from and where they were housed. Trails were followed for as long as possible including housing checks, immigration checks, if they were known to specific lists and other checks.

·      An IPSA was an Independent Sexual Violence Advisor. This was someone who could speak to the females present around safeguarding issues.

·      Seven controllers had been identified in total and investigations were ongoing.

·      Partnership Working where the issues were discussed. The Police attended the PPSG in both Enfield and Haringey. There were partners that attended the PPSG and Inspector Mason would be happy to collaborate with any entity that could help make progress.

·      The figures for women and girls having been taken out of difficult predicaments would be shared with the Board.

·      The offences between the northern and southern area were grouped together but could be broken down between numbers noted in Enfield and Haringey.

·      A firearm (a revolver) was recovered by the Boxter team. This was found by an approach followed by a stop and search. This led to a short foot chase. Officers eventually recovered a live loaded revolver.

 

RESOLVED:

That the presentation be noted.
