How you can get involved in keeping communities safe
We may not have eyes in the sky, but we do have them on the ground - and you can help keep your communities safe too!
We have a range of volunteer initiatives and Watch schemes running in Cheshire that are supported by thousands of members of the public. Why not consider getting involved with the Special Constabulary, becoming a police support volunteer, or joining your local Neighbourhood Watch scheme?
You can also sign up to be part of Rural Watch, Cycle Watch or Horse Watch and be part of a vibrant community that helps to deter criminal activity, or provide vital information where a crime has been committed.
Chief Constable Simon Byrne said: "We know our April Fool's Day joke may have ruffled a few feathers, but it was a good opportunity to highlight the benefit of having eyes and ears in the community to help support policing in Cheshire - and the important work that our volunteers do.
"In fact, it was one of our volunteers who helped to deliver 'Operation Hawkeye', for which I thank them. I would encourage anyone who has an interest in policing, in supporting their community, or in keeping people safe to get involved with us and become part of the policing family."
You can find more information in the volunteering section of our website or speak to your local officer about how to get involved.
