January Update!

Dear all,

January has drawn to an end and your latest newsletter is here. Thanks to all who responded to my queries in last month’s newsletter regarding the format, and whether you would also like news from Norton South (Brookvale). Due to your feedback, the format will be remaining in this simpler form as opposed to the old style PDF, and news from Brookvale will also be included. This brings me to the introduction of the new beat manager for Brookvale – PC Gina Volp.


Gina has previously been a Youth Engagement Officer for Runcorn, working out of many of the secondary schools. She is now taking over from PC Phil Brown in the role of beat manager for Brookvale and our newsletters will be done jointly to ensure you all have the most up to date information possible.

Thank you,

PC Hooton and PC Volp

News in your area...
We have had lots of reports this month, and have responded to a total of 176 incidents across Norton, Murdishaw and Brookvale at the time of writing.

Talismann Close

Officers attended an address on Talismann Close, Murdishaw looking for a wanted male believed to be in the address. On attendance one male jumped out of a side window and made off down the road. This male was chased by officers and detained in order to obtain details. 4 other males were inside the property along with a large quantity of cannabis and around 500 unidentified tablets, two off-road bikes were also seized as they were marked on Cheshire systems as stolen. In the end the 5 males were arrested for a variety of offences including: serious assault; failing to appear at court; possession with intent to supply controlled drugs; affray; and public order offences.

Theft of Motor Vehicle and Suspicious Activity


Throughout January, there have been 4 incidents of theft of motor vehicle across both areas, and 4 separate reports of suspicious activity involving males looking into cars and hanging around cars. Please ensure you are keeping your cars locked and the keys are not close by to the front door of your house, if you have a steering wheel lock or car alarm fitted, ensure these are set before leaving your vehicle. Please remain vigilant and report any suspicious activity including time, dates and locations to Police on 101 in order to help us build an intelligence picture to prevent further offences occurring.


Public Order Offences


Over the course of the month, there has been an increase in the number of public order related offences that the police have attended.  A public order offence is where an individual causes ‘Harassment, alarm or distress’ to another person in the area.  This can include things like swearing or threatening a person in the street.  If you have children or teenagers at home, please make them aware that it is an offence to be publically verbally abusive to someone when they’re out and about in the community.  Often, the young people we are dealing with for these offences were not aware that they were breaking the law when they swore or shouted abused at a person on the street (albeit, they knew their behavior wasn’t very nice).  This same law applies when issues arise with two neighbors who may have gotten into a verbal altercation over their garden fence.


Arrests on your area...

There were 14 people arrested across Norton, Murdishaw and Brookvale for offences ranging from Serious Assault to Burglary.

Please let us know if there is anything in particular you would like to be included in your monthly newsletter by replying directly to this message.
