Policing Priorities

Concerns from residents and reports to Police regarding group of youths committing Anti social behaviour and public order offences.

Local officers are aware of the residents concerns and are asking for any assistance in identifying these youths. There has been instances of direct criminal damage being caused to dwellings and passing cars.

Local CCTV in the area and witnesses are being sought in to help identify and these individuals will be dealt with.

Parents are also reminded to enforce advice on their children who socialise in the village not to engage in any anti social behaviour.

Burglary other in the Woolston area. We have had a couple of shed breaks and reported suspicious activity in the Bruche/Woolston area as well as a couple of break ins at business premises.

We did:

A Cheshire alert was sent to all members in the area to remind residents to check on the condition of their security and to provide information with regards how to report a crime or suspicious behaviour.

Police in the area noticed an increase in calls reporting suspicious vehicles/vans and this has led to greater intelligence gathering which has proved beneficial to the Burglary unit who have been working closely with neighbouring forces.

Officers from roads Policing have been in the area during the overnight period when the burglaries have been occurring and they have been briefed on intelligence which has been received from the public detailing the suspicious vehicles in the area.

A number of calls were received with regards hare coursers on fields and a vehicle which was being used by them. This activity is linked to organised crime and should always be reported to Police. This too has provided valuable intelligence in investigating burglaries in this area.

During December there has been no similar reports of burglaries in the Croft area.
