Inspector Dave Snasdell

Inspector David SnasdellI have been the Neighbourhood Policing Inspector at Winsford since 2008 having over 25 years policing experience in both uniform and Detective roles.

Since managing the Winsford area we have seen lots of changes within Policing and continued challenges within the organisation to make the Force a more effective service for the community of Cheshire. I am glad to say that crime and anti-social behaviour figures continue to fall within the Winsford area and this is due to the partnership approach I have embedded within the area. I continue to listen to the community concerns and try and target the most appropriate areas to reduce crime and bring offenders to justice. We have continued with our robust and proactive approach to ASB and drug offences and this reflects on the positive incidents I report on each week in my weekly newsletter.

Without the communities continued support by providing information to ourselves and partner agencies we cannot challenge and tackle those members of the community who do not conform and cause problems within the community.

This year we are focusing on supporting vulnerable members of the community within the area who suffer from mental health issues and set up a local initiative with Mid Cheshire MIND a mental health charity who supports people within the community who suffer from mental health problems. We aim to work together with members of the community who often need support and can be sign posted to the charity drop in centre at Dene Drive, Winsford for advice and support.

I am continuing to support local charities and the local boxing club who do so much to help the youth of Winsford achieve so much through sport with the annual charity boxing night which has raised over £30,000 for local charities in the past four years.

We have a good relationship with the local businesses in the area to support them to try and ensure they can support the community through employment particularly with the Winsford 1 to 5 industrial estate.

If anyone wishes to speak with me about issues that affect you in the Winsford, Moulton, Davenham, Byley and Shakerley areas, please give me a call on 01606 36 2574.

Winsford NPT covers a large area from the Winsford Town Centre to the out lying villages of Moulton, Davenham, Allostock and Byley with a population of over 30,000 residents

We have two large Industrial Estates which employ staff from the local area. The businesses have an excellent link with the local Police via the Winsford 1 to 5 Estates Manager Mike Kelly. The Town centre is managed PCSO Colette Graham-Battersby and PC Pete Taylor who have a good partnership working ethos with the Town Centre Manager.

The area has three large housing estates which are managed by Weaver Vale Housing Trust who part fund 2 PCSO’s and have a number of housing officers who work along side the PCSO’s to reduce and prevent anti-social behaviour in the area. The area has numerous licensed premises which support the local Police in the form of the Pub Watch Scheme and one late night club which provides live entertainment throughout the week. The police have close links with all partner agencies and local councillors to ensure we deal with local issues for the community.

We are keen to ensure the local community have their say in how we tackle crime and anti-social behaviour issues in the Winsford and outlying areas and hold monthly meetings which are advertised on this website for anyone to attend and have your say.
