Policing Priorities

From 1st January 2018 to 31st January 2018 the policing priorities for this area will be

Over the month of January we will be patrolling and being a visible presence around the KFC and Lidl stores on Kingsway South and KFC and Lidl on Thewlis Street. We have received reports from the retail premises and members of the public about issues and concerns over youths congregating outside the stores being rude and abusive to staff and customers. Local PCSO’s and Beat Managers will be attending these locations whilst out on patrol to offer reassurance and support for the staff and customers. We will be looking to identify those individuals are who responsible for the ASB, taking positive and proportionate action against anyone found committing any offences. If required we will issues those found in the area causing ASB with dispersal orders so they have to leave the area for a set period of time.

Drug Use and Supply on Central

The feedback we received after completing the confidence surveys in Bewsey and Dallam is Drugs Use and Supply is still a concern and fear for local residents. We will continue to be a visible presence on Central Warrington where we receive reports of drug use and supply. We are continually reviewing and developing intelligence to target and disrupt individuals and teams who are dealing in our area. We are using a number of different policing tactics to disrupt this activity. We would encourage anyone who is aware of and witnesses the use or supply of drugs to contact Cheshire Police or report it anonymously to Crimestoppers. Where we identify individual properties which are attracting users which results in lots of reports of ASB or other related reports we will look to do closure orders on these addresses similar to the one on Delves Ave.

Drug Activity on Warrington Central

We did:

On the 21st Dec officers from the Central Beat Management Team executed a warrant at 26A Delves Ave, forcing entry into the first floor flat. On entering the flat 3 adult males were found in the address and a quantity of cash and class B drugs were seized. The 3 males were subsequently arrested for Possession with Intent to Supply Class B drugs, later interviewed under caution and released under investigation. After executing the warrant a closure notice for the address was served on the occupant of the address. Beat Managers attend Chester Magistrates Court the following day to give evidence to support the closure notice which was granted. Later that day GGH secured the premises with Steel Doors. Since the arrest of the 3 males one of the males has been further arrested and recalled to prison.

Report of bin fires

We did:

On the 15th Dec officers from Warrington Beat Management and Warrington Fire Station were out and about around Bewsey and Dallam doing an engagement day with local residents and businesses. Local police and fire officers visited St Barnabas and Evelyn Street Primary Schools in the morning. The Local Beat Managers and PCSO’s visited addresses on Manley Gardens, Ripley Street, Lilford Ave, Molyneux Ave, Massey Ave and Lewis Ave and completed a confidence questionnaire. From the feedback we received it was highlighted Off Road Bikes and Drugs are the main concerns for local residents in the area. Local PCSO’s were tasked with doing a leaflet drop in the streets which had been targeted advising residents to put their bins away and out of sight.
