Local priorities set for the
period of 1st February 2013 to 28th February
Local priorities for most areas are decided every month at
police meetings. Due to the very small number of residential
properties in Warrington Town Centre in comparison to businesses,
the policing priorities rarely change. If you do live in Warrington
Town Centre, you can attend police surgeries to make your local
officers aware of any new priorities. Unless alternative issues are
raised by local residents or business, the priorities will
- Anti-social behaviour - Tackling
anti-social behaviour in the town centre both during the day and in
the evening/night time, specifically those engaged in
alcohol-related anti-social behaviour, disorderly behaviour and
- Rough sleeping - Issues surrounding Rough
Sleeping are still raised as an issue.
