Members of the community asked to discuss serious organised crime across Liverpool
Merseyside Police New HQ

Members of the community are being asked to join forces with local groups and businesses and their Neighbourhood Inspectors to help disrupt serious organised crime in Liverpool.

Serious and organised crime, involving organised crime groups (OCGs), can only be tackled with the help of the local community who are instrumental in focussing policing priorities in their area. The Community Advisory Group (CAG) plays an important role in influencing change so that where people live and work is a place where they feel safe.

On Thursday, 14 March, from 6pm until 7pm, people can sign up to join in the online CAG meeting with their Neighbourhood Inspectors and discuss tackling serious organised crime in the Liverpool area.

The Liverpool CAG is part of a wider initiative to get the local community involved in an ongoing two-way dialogue between the force and the community to give them a voice to support the force in delivering a service which meets the needs of the community. In consultation with the community, it will enable the force to develop a better understanding of their needs so that any issues raised can be discussed and considered in helping us come together to make the community a safer place for all who live, work, have businesses or run community groups in the area. Liverpool CAG have already achieved successes through increasing engagement in the area but need more people to get involved in the upcoming CAG meeting to achieve the changes the community want.

Neighbourhood Inspector Kieron Hogan said:

‘It is vital that members of the community join us and use their voice to help us tackle serious and organised crime in their area.  If you live here or run a business or local community group in the area we need you to tell us where you think the problems are and where we should focus our resources.  We are here to help the community feel safe and we will always put the needs of the community first but in order to do that we need more people to get involved in having open discussions about what worries them, what their neighbourhood priorities are and how we can work together to make their community safer.”

The Liverpool CAG covers a large area with just under half a million people living there which covers a wide demographic including people of all ages and ethnic backgrounds and is a real opportunity for the community to come together and make a difference where they live or work.

The Liverpool LPA CAG area covers the wards of; Allerton, Hunts Cross, Anfield, Belle Vale, Central Liverpool, Childwall, Church, Clubmoor, County, Cressington, Croxteth, Everton, Walton, Fazakerley, Greenbank, Kensington and Fairfield, Kirkdale, Knotty Ash, Mossley Hill, Norris Green, Old Swan, Picton, Princes Park, Riverside, Aigburth, City Centre, Dingle and Toxteth, Sefton Park, Speke-Garston, St Michaels, Tuebrook and Stoneycroft, Warbreck, Dovecot, Wavertree, West Derby, Woolton, Gateacre, Netherley and Yew Tree with a total population of 486,088.
