Policing Priorities

From 1st December 2017 to 31st December 2017 the policing priorities for this area will be

Runcorn LPU are committed to this year’s drink drive campaign to combat the potentially devastating effects of having a drink with family, friends or work colleagues before taking to the road.

Our advice to drivers is very clear with the message ‘none for the road’ being the most prudent approach. Please remember the following before considering having any alcoholic drink before driving:

  • Any amount of alcohol affects your ability to drive
  • It is not possible to say how much alcohol you can drink and stay below the limit — it depends on weight, age, sex, metabolism and of course, what you are drinking
  • The safest thing to do, is to not drink any alcohol before driving
  • If you drink drive, you risk a hefty fine, a minimum 12-month driving ban and a criminal record
  • This doesn’t reflect the everyday consequences of being caught drink driving which can include; job loss, shame and loss of independence and above all the fact that lives can be taken for the sake of having one ‘celebration’ drink.


Please be safe and don't be that person!

Runcorn LPU are still receiving reports of off-road bikes being used in the Runcorn area.  As previously stated the use of the PCSO Tasking Vehicle will continue to default to problem areas with housing associations taking robust action against tenancy breaches.  In addition,  Runcorn LPU have now issued Selecta DNA spray to PCSO and  patrol officers to uniquely 'tag' offending riders and bikes whilst they are committing offences.     




During December Runcorn LPU will be increasing officer foot patrols around retail areas to provide public reassurance and deter potential offenders, due to increased footfall and spending around this time of year. Don't give an opportunist the chance at some free gifts by leaving valuables and shopping on show in unattended vehicles!
