Commissioner launches search for new young advisors



Merseyside’s Police Commissioner Jane Kennedy is looking for interested young people to join her Youth Advisory Group (YAG).

She is inviting young people aged between 15 and 24 from a diverse range of backgrounds to participate in the second year of the group.

The group meets 4 times a year to discuss policing and community safety from a young person's point of view. Participants also have the opportunity to attend visits, comment on discussion topics and raise issues affecting them and their peers directly with the Commissioner.

Jane Kennedy said: “When I took office, I promised to listen to all young people, valuing their interests and opinions as much as any other people in the community."

“This group gives me direct contact with young people, who are able to express their views and comments with me openly and honestly. This helps me to understand exactly what they want to see from our criminal justice system”.

"I was really impressed with the enthusiasm, interest and passion demonstrated by last year’s YAG members. Sadly many of them have now moved on to new pastures, whether in further education or with their careers."

“That means we now have the space for some new members to get involved. This is a great opportunity for young people to share their views with me, learn more about the police and criminal justice system and, most importantly, have their say.”

To express interest in joining the group please contact the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner by 6th February 2015 via email to info@merseyside.pcc.pnn.gov.uk

For more information on the group, or if you have any questions, please call (0151) 777 5155 or visit the Commissioner’s website www.merseysidepcc.info/home/about-us/youth-advisory-group.aspx


DO YOU HAVE ANY INFORMATION ABOUT WW2 BOMBING AT PITT STREET IN MAY 1941?
My name is Anthony Hogan and I run a wartime remembrance website for the Liverpool and Merseyside area that covers stories from the two world wars.

I have been reading about the part the Chinese community played during the wars and would like to add a page to the website dedicated to their stories.

I would like to hear about anyone from the Chinese community who served with the forces or Merchant Navy. lived or worked in the Merseyside area during the wars, war effort workers, bombing victims, evacuees. Anything at all that covers the wartime years.

I would be interested to speak to anyone who remembers the war years themselves or anyone who has family stories they would be willing to share. I can then put them together on the website so ours and future generations can read their stories.

I am keen to learn about the WW2 bombing at Pitt Street in May 1941. Searching records I can only find details for 7 people who were killed. I know the number of dead was a much higher figure and would be grateful for any information about this tragedy.

Full credit will be given to anyone who adds a story. I welcome any help or advice from people, and I hope that together we can produce a fitting tribute to those that suffered and gave so much during wartime. Let us remember them.

I can be contacted by email at anthonyhogan13@aol.com
