Julian Raises Local Police Scheme with the Home Secretary

November 20, 2014

This week in Parliament, Julian raised a new scheme launched by North Yorkshire Police to help people with mental health issues to the Home Secretary’s attention.

During Monday’s Question Time in the House of Commons, Julian asked “Will the Home Secretary join me in praising the work of North Yorkshire police? They have launched a street triage scheme in which York-based mental health professionals join police officers on their patrols. That partnership will allow vulnerable people to receive immediate assistance and a proper mental health assessment at the scene.”

Welcoming Julian’s question, Mrs May responded by saying “I am happy to join my hon. Friend in congratulating North Yorkshire police on the work they have done on this new street triage scheme in York, and indeed the other local parties who have made it possible. The changes the Government have introduced through the street triage pilots, which are now being taken up by a number of other forces, are having a significant impact on the way the police are dealing with people with mental health problems.

“That presence of a health care professional means that in many force areas we are seeing a significant reduction in the number of people who are being taken to a police cell as a place of safety. That is better for not only the police, but, crucially, the individuals themselves.”

It has been reported that around 100 people have been assisted by Bootham Park Hospital since the scheme was launched six months ago. Julian will continue to work closely with North Yorkshire Police to ensure a consistently high standard of service is delivered to his constituents.
