Policing Priorities

From 1st April 2018 to 30th April 2018 the policing priorities for this area will be

Third party reports were received in January regarding ASB (Anti-Social Behaviour) and the general feeling that crime is on the increase on the Hallwood Park Estate. The area was closely monitored with two non-emergency ASB incidents and one low-level crime report reported during February. 

An 'estate walk' was completed by Runcorn Beat Officers, Riverside Housing, Liverpool Housing Trust and local council representatives during March.  Environmental issues were identified during the walk with the appropriate agency taking ownership of each problem.    

PC Gibson will be paying extra attention to the estate during the next month to ensure highlighted issues are being addressed.






Further reports of Anti-Social Behaviour have been received from the Whitchurch Way area. During the next month officers will be paying extra attention to areas of high demand and identified problem persons.   Officers are currently in consultation with HBC regarding the installation of an additional mobile CCTV camera to deter/identify offenders.




Runcorn LPU are still receiving reports of off-road bikes being used in the Runcorn area.  As previously stated Selecta DNA spray is available for PCSO and  patrol officers to uniquely 'tag' offending riders and bikes whilst they are committing offences.   

Several reports were received regarding the use of off-road bikes on Moss Lane, Runcorn Road and in and around Moore Nature Reserve. In response police off-road bike patrols were deployed to the area on 10th, 17th and 24th February.

Land owners have been visited who confirmed they are not permitting the use of off-road bikes with entry points secured and clear 'Private Property' signage displayed to deter riders.

 Please continue to report issues via 101 in non-emergency situations.
