3 August 2015

West Yorkshire Police and Crime Commissioner, Mark Burns-Williamson, will underline the partnership between Leeds Teaching Hospitals and West Yorkshire Police when he is guest of honour at a Crime Prevention Roadshow being held at St James’s University Hospital on Thursday (6 August).

Mr Burns-Williamson will officially open the event in the atrium of the Bexley Wing at St James’s alongside Julian Hartley, Chief Executive of the Leeds Teaching Hospitals.

The Roadshow takes place from 10am to 2pm and there will be 15 exhibitors taking part inside the atrium, as well as police and fire vehicles for visitors to look at outside the building.

The event is aimed at both hospital staff and visitors and there will be a range of stalls providing information and advice, and showcasing the work our security and counter-fraud team do in conjunction with our Police Community Support Officers.

As well as highlighting staying safe and a zero tolerance of crime and anti-social behaviour on hospital sites, the event will also give people advice about domestic crime prevention, safer car parking, domestic violence and the range of help and support available.

There will also be fire safety advice from our colleagues at West Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service.

Everyone is welcome to come along to this free event.
