November update - The Grange

Alert message sent 05/12/2016 14:40:00

Information sent on behalf of Cheshire Constabulary

Hello everyone,

It’s been another busy month on The Grange as we now start the countdown to Christmas!
Firstly, we have some great news as we have a new officer on The Grange beat team. PC Vikki Gorman joins us from one of our response teams. Vikki is an experienced officer who will be a very welcome addition to The Grange.   

Bonfire night passed with only a few incidents of ASB, with many residents heading down to the Old Town to enjoy the brilliant fireworks display. There were a few incidents of some bonfires becoming dangerous, however working alongside Cheshire Fire and Rescue the night passed without any concerns.

There has been a drop in the number of ASB incidents in The Grange, especially around the businesses on Grangeway and Langdale Road. We will continue to target the area during peak hours and especially in the run up to Christmas.
A recent survey was carried out with a number of businesses around Grangeway as we look to work together to shape how we police the local community. Results showed that businesses felt there was a good level of service from the police, but requested an increase in the number of visible patrols. As part of our ‘you said, we did’ commitment, we will increase the number of patrols and visits from the local beat team.
Creative Support and related issues continues to be a priority for us. We have recently carried out a walkthrough of the site with help from our dog unit as we continue to target drug related behavior on The Grange.

At this time of the year, we remind everyone to keep mindful of a few simple security tips:
  • Being careful when withdrawing large amounts of money from cash machines where you can be seen doing so.
  • Taking care to avoid going back and forth to your car with bags of shopping where you can be observed by potential opportunist thieves.
  • If you are buying high value gifts making sure not to carry them where they can be easily taken quickly such as under your arm or on top of a pram.
  • Leave lights on or set-up a timer when not at home.
  • Do not leave your car unattended whilst it is running and defrosting.
  • Do not leave keys within easy reach of any doors and instead ensure that keys are stored securely within your home.
There have unfortunately been a few incidents of interference with door locks. We believe that the front part of the locks are being cut off so that the inside of the locks can be removed, therefore giving access into addresses and garages. Any incidents where you believe this may have happened or attempted should be reported to the police immediately.

We hope you have a very happy and safe Christmas, and a wonderful new year as we head in 2017.

Thanks for reading,

PC Alex Beddard and PC Vikki Gorman
