Update for September

Alert message sent 02/10/2016 20:01:00

Information sent on behalf of Cheshire Constabulary

Hello everyone,

Now the children have gone back to school we are starting to plan ahead for Halloween and Bonfire Night.
While the majority of children and families will enjoy these events in a safe and sensible way, there is usually a small minority who will see an opportunity for behaving in a disruptive, anti-social and sometimes criminal manner. In previous years, the night before Halloween has been particularly problematic. As such we would ask that children are discouraged from socializing with friends on the evening of the 30th October and are encouraged to engage in organised activities on the night of Halloween and Bonfire Night.

At the end of September we created a 48 hour dispersal zone around the shops on Grangeway.  This was created due to the amount of anti-social behaviour in the area, carried out by a group of youths.  They were causing issues for the businesses and their customers.  The dispersal zone gives us the power to direct those causing ASB to leave and not return for 48 hours.  It also gives us a power to seize items that can be used for ASB and this includes balls, bikes, laser pens etc.

If there are any area’s where you believe that there is a lot of rubbish or debris which could be used for anti-social behaviour, please get in touch with Halton Borough Council in order to get it removed.  Alternatively send me a message on Cheshire Alert and I will make contact for you.  Just let me know where it is.
I am really pleased to say that there have been no burglaries on the Grange this month but would still ask that everyone keeps their property secure, especially as the dark nights are closing in.  This includes garages and sheds.

Another bit of news for our area is that we will shortly have a Police Now recruit working with us. Police Now is an innovative new scheme that is intended to attract some of the best possible recruits into policing . The recruits are fully sworn in police officers but will be specifically tasked with addressing persistent problems in the areas in which they work. PC Alex Beddard joins us next week.

Thanks for reading!
