There are two elements to an Annual Report. Both came from the Police Act 1996. The Chief Constable had a requirement to submit to the Authority a general report on the policing of the force as soon after the end of the financial year as possible and arrange for it to be published. The Police Authority had a requirement to publish an annual report which outlines performance in the previous year and how far the intentions of the three year strategy and local policing plan were met. Cheshire, like many other forces and authorities, has produced a joint publication to satisfy both these requirements.
The Police and Justice Act 2006 repealed section 9 of the Police Act 1996 Sec 9 to produce an annual report in this way.
Cheshire Constabulary is made up of eight Local Policing Units: Chester, Crewe, Ellesmere Port, Macclesfield, Northwich, Runcorn, Warrington and Widnes.
Within these units are Neighbourhood Policing Teams. Each of the Local Policing Units is led by a Chief Inspector. This neighbourhood-based style of policing is about putting the local back into local policing.
To find out who the Police Officers and Police Community Support Officers are in your area and what they are doing please visit the your area pages on this site.
