Beat Managers Update
Welcome to the first instalment of our Cheshire Alert update for the Mersey Ward area of Runcorn.  The Beat Team for your area is made up of PCSO Gary Buckles and PCSO Rebecca Thompson and myself PC Richard Green.  We are supported by colleagues on response and specialist units including but not limited to Traffic and CID. Inspector Barry Brown oversees uniformed the Local Policing Units.

The team is providing a visible presence and reassurance in the area whilst concentrating on some of more challenging and time consuming problems and issues that are affecting the local community. The priorities we focus on can vary depending on current crime patterns and demands and needs of the residents. Work we regularly carry out can vary from investigating drugs activity, ASB (Street Drinking, Begging, off Road Bikes), Persistent Shoplifting offences, and managing locations and persons causing repeat demand to services or annoyance to others.

Currently we run community meetings at on the first Tuesday of every month at Amethyst Living on Queens Close, Runcorn and the last Thursday of every month at Amethyst Living, Brunswick House off Water Street. Both are open to the public and an opportunity to chat with your local officer.  Worthwhile opportunity for a bacon buttie and cup of tea or coffee, made by Amethyst coordinator Karen, for £1.50.

We would ask for your views on how you’d want the team to interact with the community. We are open to any ideas or suggestions what format you would like community meetings to run.

As part of ongoing community engagement we will be carrying out school visits to Westfield Primary School and Victoria Road Primary School in the coming days. Following on from a successful morning of bike marking on Runcorn Hill Park last month we will be at The CYCLE Centre 37 - 39 Regent Street Runcorn WA7 1LJ on Saturday 11th June 2016 at 1030am to 2pm. We still have an issue with pedal cycles being stolen. Please secure your sheds and outbuildings as best as you can. Bringing your bike along to our bike marking events will assist us should your bike be recovered in the event of it being stolen.

You can contact Your Local neighbourhood Team through Twitter, Facebook, Telephone 101 (Always dial 999 in event of emergency) or email  

If you wish to remain anonymous and pass information about crime or a Most Wanted appeal to us you can also call Crimestoppers 24/7 on 0800 555 111
We will continue to update you with crime trends, events, and good news stories.  Thank you for taking the time to read this first update.
