Speed Enforcement was carried on Ramsbrook Lane 15.03.15 but equipment faulty so assessment/deterrent factor only. The Safety Camera partnership van did Halegate rd this month
In addition enforcement will continue to be carried out by this van and we will carry out enforcement whenever we can. We have encouraged the van to vary locations and have put this request to them We have attended outside of Hale Primary school on a number of occasions and visited the school to check for any issues in general and to check on parking issues which were both fine. Regular checks and patrols were made of the village by colleagues.
The additional cover for Hale Village is provided by PCSO 21619 Victoria Titherington. The Police Officer Beat Manager for this area is PC 2531 Liz Corless.
We 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. We 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.
We are hoping the Parish Council, school, church, businesses and residents are encouraged and reassured by the report however if you have any questions please do not hesitate to get in touch.
If you want up to date information about Hale Village policing matters we post messages on Twitter and Tweet as often as we should/can when we are 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 we 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
A resource for obtaining information as to police related matters is https://www.askthe.police.uk (apps available)
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 us know what information you would like including on this report and we will see if we can incorporate this.
Thank You for your attention
