Policing Priorities

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

To reduce anti-social behaviour in the town centre which is linked to the use of new psychoactive substances commonly referred to as ‘legal highs’ – in particular ‘spice.’ One of the ways we intend to do this is to enforce the Public Space Protection Order which is now in place in the town centre which now makes it illegal to use intoxicating substances known as ‘legal highs’ in this area.

From 1st December 2017 to 31st December 2017

Reduce the supply of illegal drugs in the night time economy over the xmas period

We did:

The beat team have been working with Warrington Police dog ‘Rufus’ and his handler PC Jukes patrolling both the Bridge Street area and Licensed premises in December. Rufus has successfully detected drugs on every outing including the arrest of a male for possession with intent to supply cannabis on Bridge Street. Following visits to licensed premises he has also recovered quantities of cannabis and cocaine from individuals who have since been processed for these offences. Patrols with Rufus in the town centre will continue into the New Year. We will continue to target individuals who take and supply illegal drugs in the town centre environment including licensed premises.

You said:

Prevent sales of alcohol to children

We did:

In partnership with the Borough Council and the Alcohol Harm Reduction Team a series of test purchases were carried out at Licensed premises in the town centre in December. Thirteen premises were visited of which two failed. Further formal action is being taken against one of these premises in the New Year. It was pleasing to see that the vast majority of license premises tested were taking all reasonable steps to prevent entry to the premises and sales of alcohol to persons under the age of 18.
