From 17th January 2014 (last submission) to 16th February 2015 there have been 33 entries on our systems for Hale Village. Not all of these are actions of a criminal nature as can be seen from the detail below and please bear in mind the extended reporting period due to Festive holidays.

I carried out a speed assessment for an hour on Town Lane at 15.25hrs 16.01.15 one vehicle showed 38mph – letter to keeper. I will make use of the portable Automatic Number Plate Recording equipment in the area as soon as practicable. This equipment is however used across the area on a regular basis to accompany the static cameras. I have attended outside of Hale Primary school on a number of occasions to check for any issues in general with the school and to check on parking issues which were both fine. Regular checks and patrols were made of the village by me and my colleagues. I reported fly tipping on Church Rd, Baileys Lane & Ramsbrook Lane. These areas are often blighted with this issue. I have received a reply from Liverpool Airport about Baileys Lane area improvements. Encl;
The additional cover for Hale Village is provided by PCSO 21619 Victoria Titherington.
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
A scheme I want to promote is called 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
