 Beat Managers Update May 2016

Dear all

Welcome to the Review of May 2016 for the Mersey / Old Town ward of Runcorn.
Hopefully you will have seen officers from your local Beat Team patrolling in the town over the last month and I can share with you some of the successes and types of incidents we have responded to.

Over the past couple of nights there has been an increase in acquisitive crime from garden sheds and vehicles. As always please look to secure sheds and consider lighting in gardens. Please report any suspicious activity especially if any persons are disturbed. Do not leave valuables or cash on display in vehicles.

We have seen two different Criminal Behaviour Orders granted by Magistrates on local persons this month which have been used effectively to combat anti-social behaviour and incidents of disorder and criminal damage. A Criminal Behaviour order is a fairly new piece of legislation. It allows police to impose certain prohibitions on individuals including positive actions requiring persons to engage for example on drug or alcohol treatment services. We will continue to use these orders where appropriate to safeguard communities from persons who continually come to police attention who can often affect the quality of life for some of our residents, or persons working within our community.

We have carried out a positive drugs warrant this week at NORFOLK STREET, Runcorn. One male was arrested and is currently on bail. As always I would encourage residents as always to share information about drugs in all areas of Runcorn with police or crime stoppers.

The priority area for violent crime in in the Old Town area is High Street and Church Street. Officers will be deploying in these areas to combat violent incidents and incidents of disorder and will be carrying visits to licensed premises.  Whilst most people on a night out are well intentioned and good spirited for the small minority intent to cause problems in our pubs or clubs, please be assured that positive action will be taken and police are working in partnership with the local authority.

We have seen a number or parking complaints especially in Church Street outside the takeaways.  I would hope that motorists are considerate enough to park in designated bays and whilst officers discretion or advisory notices have been used on occasions it is likely that police will carry out parking enforcement on offending vehicles if this problem continues.

We have carried out school visits at Victoria Road Primary School and Westfield Primary School this month which is always fun with loads of questions from the children! We will try and get round to the other schools in the area very soon.

Have fun if you are attending The Runcorn Regatta on the Bridgewater Canal which takes place this weekend 28th – 29th May.  Police will be calling in so say hello! I wish all residents and subscribers of our alert newsletter a happy Whit Bank Holiday and for those lucky enough to be taking a break have a great time.
