Today some of the committee members of the Middlewich Clean Team attended a Community Crime Fighters training day in Birmingham. This doesn’t mean the MCT is taking over crime fighting in Middlewich! It’s about how we can work alongside, or challenge criminal justice services when they fall short, by knowing what services to expect from the criminal justice system, how best to help others or get things changed for the better.
The photograph shows Middlewich Clean Team participants in the course with Louise Casey (centre front), Director General, Neighbourhood Crime and Justice Group.
The course was part of the Ministry of Justice Community Crime Fighters scheme and the content of the course was very much influenced by a Cabinet Office review “Engaging Communities in Fighting Crime” which was completed in June 2008.
