Cheshire Police at the Cheshire Show
A badly-damaged car will be a central
feature of the Cheshire Police exhibit at the Cheshire
The vehicle was being driven in Cheshire when it left
the road and hit a tree, killing the
driver. He died just two days before his 21st
Cheshire's Assistant Chief Constable Ruth Purdie said,
Purdie, Cheshire Constabulary
We are inviting people to talk to Police Officers about the
importance of driving carefully and responsibly
and the possible consequences of even a momentary lapse of
concentration or a small misjudgement.
In particular we hope that young people and their parents will
talk to us. We don't want to scare anyone away
from driving but we believe the sight of the car and learning what
happened to that young man will underline the message in a way that
nothing else could.
Other features of the Cheshire Police exhibit at the show will
centre on the work of Watch organisations- Home Watch, PubWatch,
RuralWatch and various business watch groups.
Cheshire Police representatives at the show will also link up
with Cheshire West and Chester Council to promote Heritage
Watch, the new movement to protect the county's historic
buildings and other heritage sites which are under threat from
criminals trying to steal lead, copper and other metals.
Staff and members from Cheshire Police
Authority will be at the show to ask people for
their views on policing. They will also provide
information about Police and Crime Commissioners.
Where we are
The Cheshire Police stand can be found at the top of row C4
