Congleton is part of the Eastern BCU

Inspector Steven Smith

I am the Neighbourhood Inspector responsible for Congleton NPU, which includes the communities of Sandbach, Middlewich, Alsager and  Holmes Chapel.

I have served with Cheshire Constabulary for 17 years and have worked in a variety of uniform and CID roles across the Western and Eastern areas of Cheshire.  During my service I have been stationed at Northwich, Middlewich, Congleton, Wilmslow and Macclesfield

I began my police service as a Constable stationed at Congleton Police Station and feel privileged to return and lead  NPU, which consists of highly motivated and dedicated Police Officers, Police Community Support Officers and Special Constables who are working hard to prevent and detect crime, and reduce Anti-Social Behaviour.  I am committed to continuing to develop the strong links my officers have within the communities we serve and working with partners to tackle issues that affect the communities in which you live.

I would encourage you to come forward and let us know about the issues and concerns affecting you and your communities, so that we can seek to identify community priorities and address those issues.  Furthermore, If you have any information regarding those engaged in criminal activities or Anti-Social Behaviour in your community then I urge you to report this to us.

You can do this in a number of ways, for example contacting us by phone on 101 (or 999 in an emergency), speaking with your local officer, attending a local police engagement meeting, visiting the Police Station or, anonymously, by contacting Crimestoppers on 0800 555 1111.  You can also email the NPU with non- urgent queries on

By working together we can make a difference and continue to make our communities safe and feel safe.

Please follow us on Twitter @congletonNPU to get updates from the NPU. I would also encourage as many people as possible to sign up to Cheshire Police Alert by visiting our website and following the link located at the bottom of the page on the Home tab. This is a new way of getting vital local information out to the community and gives you the opportunity to feedback.
