With an extra number of days in this period (as last meeting was brought forward) this month’s figures are, once again encouraging. We also need to consider the period above covered the So-called Mischief night, Halloween and Bonfire night periods. There were NO reports from the Hale Village area and we thank ALL residents for being considerate to others. Our police Operation Treacle was very effective this year across the Widnes area and we had sufficient officers on duty to cover the usual hotspots as well as checking other areas. A number of Dispersal Notices were utilised to deter and deal with the hot-spot locations.
I have called into the village hall a few times to meet up with some of our residents as I can gauge what the feeling is as to whether they feel safe and have any worries etc. It is also a chance to update the residents who are unable to come to the parish council meetings.
While patrolling the village I was asked to check out an abandoned vehicle on Kildare Close. The vehicle was not showing as having any insurance and, although declared off –road – as in SORN, the vehicle was on the public highway. Resident was given the opportunity to move the vehicle which was done immediately.
Also to do with traffic matters I checked the roads around the bottom of Hoghton and the “fruit tree” closes for poor parking reported by a couple of residents. I made a few drivers aware of the issues their vehicles were causing either in person or with our Advisory Notices. I will continue to check, especially of an evening when the incidents are reportedly worse.
24th October there were reports of illegal shooting in fields near the Duck Decoy. This was checked out and was all in order. ( legal). As always we aim to be visible to you but if you find an issue occurring that we have not noticed or has not been brought to our attention please get in touch (see below)
Reports of illegally used off road motorbikes have reduced. This, by and large, is due to continued efforts to combat the problem which affects police forces across the country. These efforts will continue with the aim of reducing the danger and nuisance to law-abiding citizens.
Speed Enforcement was carried out on Ramsbrook Lane on 22nd October 2015 for one hour with one vehicle being captured at 48mph (in the 30mph limit!) We will carry out speed enforcement whenever we can.
A reminder that the Grundy’s Excavation Company (the company name will be on the vehicle) have said all of their vehicle drivers have been asked NOT to use Hale Village and if any of these are sighted going through Hale Village that the driver will be spoken to and asked for an explanation. Please report any details to me showing correct vehicle registration mark and date and time and I will speak with this company. Please bear in mind the avoidance of Hale Village by this company is only a good will gesture and not legally enforceable.
I visited Grundy’s Skip Hire in October (GSH) and I was assured they only use Hale Village if they need to and that all loads should be secured. Again please let me know of any issues with this company and get details as above if any loads are not secured.
Reports of fly tipping (at least via the Police) have reduced with two reports that I know of (Carr Lane and Baileys Lane – old cannabis plants)
The roads outside of the main entrance to Hale Village primary school now have single yellow waiting restrictions in place and plates on nearby posts show the times these are in force. I have attended here on a number of occasions to check for any issues in general. Regular checks and patrols were also made of the village by colleagues.
We hope you can see for yourself by this report that, when you hear of reports that generally crime is falling, you can see how this is reflected in your area. As said previously we are not complacent and will continue to try and bring the figures down across all police-related issues.
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 @PoliceWidnes (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
I would like to promote the Cheshire police ALERT system more as presently we only have about a dozen subscribers – 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
https://www.cheshirepolicealert.co.uk I am more than willing to help any resident or business get set up.
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
