Dear Mr Jolly


Thank you for your email of 10th July 2016 to the North Yorkshire Police
and Crime Panel ("the NYPCP"), seeking information regarding the policing
of protests anticipated to take place at Kirby Misperton.


The NYPCP is responsible for providing a 'check and balance' function
which supports the Police and Crime Commissioner for North Yorkshire in
her key role of holding the Chief Constable to account.  This function is
therefore one which focusses around providing scrutiny of the
Commissioner's performance and has regard to certain strategic issues such
as ensuring that the Commissioner's plans and priorities reflect the needs
of people living within the North Yorkshire force area.  Further
information about the role of the NYPCP, if helpful, can be found at


To be clear then, the NYPCP does not have any responsibility for or
involvement with operational policing matters such as officer deployment. 
This responsibility lies specifically with North Yorkshire Police.  If you
wish to contact North Yorkshire Police on this matter then please contact:

I hope this information is helpful.
