Inspector Steve Griffiths

I am Inspector Steve Griffiths and I have the responsibility for the management of Macclesfield Neighbourhood Policing Unit. My team consists of police officers, PCSOs, police staff and Special Constables who are very experienced and knowledgeable. The team strive to make you be safe and feel safe so I would encourage you to inform us of any issues you feel police can assist with.You can do this using our website or by ringing 101.

We are communicating much more on Twitter as a form of passing important information to you as well appealling for information to enable us to solve crimes and/or other issues. Our Twitter account is @MacclesfieldNPU if you would like to follow us.

I would also encourage as many people as possible to sign up to Cheshire Alert by visiting our website and following the link. This is a new way of getting vital local information out to the community and gives you the opportunity to feedback.

How local priorities are agreed in Macclesfield

The Macclesfield Neighbourhood Policing Unit consists of seven Neighbourhood Policing Teams.

Every month your team holds several open meetings or surgeries in your area which are advertised in several ways including on our website, locally in shops, on Parish noticeboards.

During these meetings members of the community are invited to raise local issues with the members of your team present, on occasions local councillors attend meetings and can answer questions relating to council matters e.g. emptying of litter bins. In addition, other issues that can be resolved are taken on board and either dealt with by the local officer or passed onto partner agencies if not a policing issue; for example, a highways issue (e.g. yellow lines need replacing) that can be passed to Cheshire East Council.

The local priorities for the month are decided upon by your local team, in consultation with Sergeants Pete Brazendale, Steve Davenport and Simon Degg who carry out a review of all information held on the police systems relating to your area. In addition, information received in other formats, such as communication to our Neighbourhood Policing Team mailbox or talking to one of your team members on foot patrols is also taken into consideration before the priorities are decided on.

The priorities for the coming month are then listed on the Cheshire Police website. We also give an update of what we did to address the previous priorities. Your local officers also provide posters and feedback sheets about priorities which are placed on Parish noticeboards, shops, etc. or handed out to residents during our reassurance patrols, in areas affected by the local priority, in order to communicate this information.

If you require additional information, please contact us and we can discuss the matter further with you. Follow @MacclesfieldNPU on Twitter to get updates from Macclesfield Neighbourhood Policing Unit.
