Inspector Alan Fairclough

I am Alan Fairclough, Neighbourhood Policing Inspector for the Wilmslow area. I am responsible for policing in the Wilmslow and the surrounding areas of Alderley Edge, Colshaw Farm, Lacey Green, Handforth, Morley and Styal, Hough, Fulshaw and Dean Row.

I joined Thames Valley Police in 1988 & my initial uniform policing experiences was around Windsor - including state & presidential visits. My most memorable day was catching a burglar inside a remote farmhouse – which led to recovering & returning stolen property from over 20 houses.

I progressed to sergeant – again, mostly neighbourhood based - and gained temporary promotion to Slough NPU Inspector and then into Operational training near Reading. Responsible for managing initial recruitment alongside developmental training for more experienced staff.

I transferred to Cheshire in 2005 where I have again worked in neighbourhoods on East Cheshire until the last 3 years as a Force Incident Manager at HQ Control Centre and responsible for initial deployment to spontaneous armed response & other high risk events including natural disasters, serious crimes & collisions.

I have always enjoyed ‘uniform policing’ and working in neighbuorhoods has been my passion.

Joining a high performing team of police staff, PCSOs, Constables & Sergeants at Wilmslow is a challenge I am ready for & our initial priorities will be:

  • Ensure all public emergency calls are attended promptly.
  • Continue working with partners to reduce anti-social behavior.
  • Tackle crime & public disorder robustly.
