From 1st December 2017 to 1st January 2018 the policing priorities for this area will be
Speed enforcement following reports from members of the public about problem roads will continue - speeding kills and will not be tolerated in our community.
Due to a recent increase in burglaries where keys are stolen from houses in order to steal cars on the drive we will be working hard to combat this.
To keep your vehicles safe do not leave keys on display in your home or keep them in locations that can be reached using hooks put through windows, letterboxes, cat-flaps etc. It may be convenient for you to hang them by the door but it's also convenient for thieves!
Widnes Police have launched Operation Scrambler in response to this on-going nuisance and anti social behaviour. As part of this operation we have identified key areas used by these riders and increased patrols at key times.
We are committed to tackling this on-going issue and appeal for the help of the local community in identifying those responsible for this unlawful and anti-social behaviour. We have launched a specific email address for this operation which can be used anonymously by members of the public to advise and pass any information which may assist us in the arrest and prosecution of those responsible. The specific information we are interested in is:
Description of rider / clothing
Name / address of rider if known
Description of bike including any distinguishing marks
Address of where bikes are coming from / being stored
If you have any information that you wish to send to us you can do this in a number of ways:
Tel: 999 (in an emergency)
Tel: 101 (non emergency )
Tel: 0800 555 111 (Crimestoppers - can be used anonymously)
Parking issues outside Lunts Heath and Farnworth Schools will remain a priority for PCSO 20351 Griffiths. Fixed Penalty notices to be issues to vehicles parked on double yellow lines or causing an obstruction.

You said you wanted a more visible police presence on your streets.We did:
We have started an initiative, where in addition to our normal patrols, we visit one beat area each month on mass. We knock on as many houses as we can to chat to you all and also put up a gazeebo which you can pop along to to get crime prevention advice, freebies and bike marking kits!
These events will be publicised on our social media channels and Cheshire Alert, so follow/sign-up to make sure you don't miss out!
In November, PC Pemberton hosted a week of action on Halton View with Street A Week acting as the grand finale. Throughout the week, Cheshire's Road Policing Unit assisted with speed enforcement across the area and enforcing weight restrictions on Barrows Green Lane. Local PC's and PCSO's conducted regular foot patrols on and around The Bongs.

We've done speed enforcement on problem roads including Ramsbrook Lane, Halebank Road and Moorfield Road. We've also rolled out training on the TruCam speed camera to more of our PCSOs and Police Officers, to increase our ability to run these operations more often.

Along with colleagues from Merseyside police, we conducted numerous warrants across Widnes and Merseyside, arrested 29 offenders and worked with housing providers to close the problem houses for up to three months.
