OCHD is thrilled to share the news of the election of Mr David Sidwick as Dorset PCC: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-dorset-57029913.
David has been in direct meaningful contact and dialogue with our organisation from its inception, and as visitors to our website will recall David’s important Businesses & Crime Survey — https://www.ochd.org.uk/ochd-proposed-bcp-council-area-bame-community-supportive-crime-hate-crime-consultation-proposal-conservative-dorset-pcc-candidate-businesses-crime-survey/ — with OCHD support for this important initiative being augmented by valuable research & solutions orientated dialogue and discussion around the major topic of BAME SME’s experiences of race & related ASB, and how the latter needs to be tackled by a new and comprehensive BAME communities & multi agency approach.
We are delighted to be able to engage with David on some very important BAME community support and engagement issues and needs, which we have discussed with Mr Sidwick who shares our perspectives on these, and our own OCHD approach on support to all sections of society and backgrounds.
On the 12th May, OCHD CEO, Director and Lead Founder Pritheepal Singh in conjunction with OCHD Director and co-founder Alan Mercel-Sanca, had a very helpful meeting with our new DPCC. The discussions were valuable and very fruitful.
OCHD is looking forward to working with David in support to our BCP and Dorset BAME communities, and for all sections of society and all backgrounds and walks of life in regard to cross-cutting anti-ASB subjects, and policing/Dorset Police support.
