From 24th November 2014 (last Parish Council Meeting) to 17th January 2015 there have been 50 entries on our systems for Hale Village.

Speed Enforcement was not carried out for the period due to commitments but speed assessment was carried out by for an hour 16th January Town Lane and the High Street. Only One vehicle was captured exceeding the limit and the driver, a local person, was advised. Enforcement will continue to be carried out by the Safety Camera partnership van and I will continue to carry out enforcement whenever I can. I have also now been trained to utilise the portable Automatic Number Plate Recording equipment and will utilise this in the area as soon as practicable.
The additional cover for Hale Village is provided by PCSO 21606 Leigh HUNT and PCSO 21619 Victoria Titherington. We also have our own dedicated Special Constable – Steve Parry and we will no doubt work together as soon as possible.
I want to encourage even more information – intelligence that we gather. If residents are not confident in passing their details to us they can call Crimestoppers on 0800 555111 – they won’t ask for your details and the information will still reach us. I would rather they have the confidence in us and the system as the callers’ details are “sanitized” from all the intelligence reports. I.e. suspicious goings on/suspicious persons/vehicles, smells of cannabis etc. if reporting vehicles or persons try and obtain details such as vehicle registration marks; clothing descriptions etc – if you have a mobile with you many have voice recorders.
I am hoping the Parish Council, school, church, businesses and residents are encouraged by the report however if you have any questions please do not hesitate to get in touch.
If you have any issues call 101 - landline or mobile (flat rate 15p) you do not need to ask for me as I may not be on duty though if I am I can visit if you wish. I do monitor the hale Village incidents you can also email me firstname.lastname@example.org – but please report all Incidents to 101 and phone 999 if it is an emergency.
If you want up to date information about Hale Village policing matters I post messages on Twitter and Tweet as often as I should/can when I am on duty and our address is WidnesNPU (if any readers are local and they need any help with this I can also call along to set it up for you or show you how to tweet yourselves! (It’s so easy - just like texting!)
Another great communication tool is the Cheshire police’s internet site www.cheshire.police.uk Then there is the police ALERT system – this system is geared up similar to a homewatch scheme whereby businesses or households can choose to be alerted on matters that you want – such as scams, bogus callers, etc. and by which method you choose such as text, phone call, email etc. There is more information on our website or via www.cheshirepolicealert.co.uk
Remember 999 calls are for emergencies only and these cover matters such as but not limited to:
there is a danger to life
violence is used or threatened
a serious crime (violent crime/burglary) is in progress or likely to occur
a suspect for a serious crime is nearby
there is a road traffic collision involving personal injury or danger to other road users
a vulnerable person needs urgent attention
Our 999 call handlers strive to answer all calls within 10 seconds
For non-emergency calls, call 101. Using 999 for general enquiries may delay response to someone who needs urgent assistance. You should dial 101 (the non-emergency number) if:
you want to report a crime or criminal damage that is not in progress at the time of your call
you want to report a minor road traffic collision
you want to contact your local police officer
you want to enquire about lost property or provide information to the police
you need information or advice
Finally, please do let me know what information you would like including on this report and I will see if we can incorporate this.
Thank You for your attention
