North Yorkshire residents asked to complete drugs survey

North Yorkshire residents asked to complete drugs survey

Published by Harry Long at 7:00am 9th November 2019.

North Yorkshire residents are being asked to complete a survey about drugs this weekend. 

  • The survey asks people about drug issues in their area. 
  • It's ahead of a summit on Tuesday, which is being held by the Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner.
  • It will discuss drug issues in the county.   

It's ahead of a summit between the police, council and support services who help people with drug problems in the area.  

The summit's been called by the North Yorkshire's Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner over increased concerns about drug use in the county. 

The short survey asks what you have seen and heard taking place where you live, the impact you believe drugs are having in your community and what action was taken by the authorities if you reported it. The survey is open until 1pm on Monday. 

Julia Mulligan said:

“There is growing concern about the scale of drug dealing and illegal drug use across North Yorkshire. Young or old, rural or urban, streetwise or not - day in, day out people are telling me they are growing more worried about it, how available they are and how visible it’s become. 

“The North Yorkshire Drugs Summit is a result of my alarm at the situation we face and the challenge that needs addressing. I want your voice to be heard and listened to by the partners and agencies being brought together which is why I need your help to give a snapshot of what is happening where you live.

“The survey will only take a few minutes to complete and I promise the views will be listened to. Please take a moment this weekend to have your say.”

The survey can be completed here.
