25 June 2021
Alderman Maurice Devenney was nominated as Chair of the Policing and Community Safety Partnership (PCSP) at last night's Council meeting (24th June 2021). Alderman Devenney succeeds Cllr Martin Reilly and will serve as Chair of the PCSP for a 12 month period.
Commenting on his appointment, Alderman Devenney said: "I am delighted that Council has endorsed my nomination to serve as Chair of the PCSP for the next year. I am fully aware of the important and valuable work that your PCSP delivers in our communities and I hope to build on this over the coming months.
"As a partnership, we will work collectively to improve the community safety of the entire district while encouraging cooperation with our policing colleagues. As an elected representative for the Sperrin DEA I have a particular interest in rural and farm safety but will also be supporting our initiatives to improve road safety and reduce the harmful effects of drug and alcohol misuse.
"During my term I hope to engage with all the excellent initiatives supported by the PCSP to deliver safer communities and look forward to working with our brilliant young people to enhance their positive role in making our district a safer place for all."
