I hope your all well. Please see below the crime stats for Hartford from 10/11 - 11/12.
ASB – 6
One of note is a scrambler style bike on Thornywood Northwich road. Passing attention is being paid hopefully should get a hold of them before Xmas
RTC/Highway disruptions – 8
None of note.
Shoplifting – 6
Five of these offences are all linked to two offenders shoplifting from the CO-OP and Sainsbury’s. One was arrested in Hartford on Thursday and has been dealt with for the offence. There is still one outstanding offender believed to be from Liverpool
Burglary – 5
This includes two attempts where no access has been gained and two where access has been gained but nothing taken. I am currently working with the home watch schemes in the area to gather information from around that time and residents are aware to remain vigilant around this time of year.
Other – 1
On Thursday there were two wanted offenders spotted in the Hartford area that made off upon seeing police. There was a short foot chase in the area of School lane where one of the offenders was apprehended. The second offender has been collected at his home address. Local residents were very helpful and we thank them for their cooperation.
My priority over the Christmas period will be ASB over the dark nights and my work with the home watch coordinators. Further updates regarding this should be coming early in the new year.
PCSO update/Looking forward
I have been and continue to be busy with commitments over the Christmas period and along with this being a very busy time of year for us as a force. I will be available at most of the big Christmas events in Hartford and encourage people to come and speak to me.
I am looking for a push in information from the community as I am finding a lot of incidents are not being reported to me and people are mentioning things weeks after the event when they see me. Please can people send any information that they have to me via your local home watch coordinator or call us on 101. Just remember even if you think that the information is worthless on its own it may form part of a bigger picture.
Lastly Merry Christmas to everyone in Hartford and I hope you all enjoy a happy new year. AL
