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!

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!


Runcorn LPU are continuing efforts to reduce Anti-Social Behaviour reports in and around the Meadway area of Halton Brook. 

Runcorn ASB team have now raised the issue with Halton Borough Council with the area proposed as a PSPO (Public Space Protection Order) location. PSPOs, introduced in 2014,  sit amongst a broad range of powers to help tackle Anti-Social Behaviour locally. They are aimed at ensuring public spaces can be enjoyed free from Anti-Social Behaviour. PSPOs can be used to prohibit specified activities, and/or require certain things to be done by people engaged in particular activities, within a defined public area.
