Despite some incidents occuring this month’s figures are still encouraging. I have patrolled where and when possible and I have tried to cover some of the smaller, quieter inner roads as well. I have conducted patrols across the village from up near the border with Speke to Halegate Road and including the arterial routes. I also try to call into some of the residents or businesses in the remoter areas such as Rmasbrook Lane, Baileys Lane etc.
Unfortunately I have been unable to enforce any speed restrictions for this period though I am pleased to announce I am ona 2 day training course this coming week for new equipment I have been told we will be receiving.
I have called into the vilalge 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 alos a chance to update residents who are unable to come to the parish council meetings.
I continue to check the rods around the bottom of Hoghton and the “fruit tree” closes for poor parking reported by a couple of residents. I have placed an Advisory Notice (warning notice) onto one vehicle making the driver aware of the problem their parking could cause.
I will continue to check, especially of an evening when the incidents are reportedly worse.
There were a few reports of illegal shooting in the fields near the Duck Decoy and the nearby areas and we are following these incidents up in both Hale Village and Halebanlk areas.
As always we aim to be visible to you but if you find an issue occuring that we have not noticed or has not been brought to our attention please get intouch (see below).
Reports of illegaly 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 efforst will continue with the aim of reducing the danger and nuisance to law – abiding citizens.
A reminder that he Grundy’s Excavation Company (the company name will be on the vehicle) have said all of their vehicl drivers have bee nasked NOT to use Hale Vilalge and
If any of these are sighted going through Hale Village that the driver will be spoken toand 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 Vilalge 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.
I would be pleased to hear feedback – good and bad – on both companies and I will feed this back to them.
Reports to the police of fly tipping (usually it affects traffic as otherwise the local authority would deal) have continued and Carr Lane and Baileys Lane - hotspots – along with Church Road which was horrible to see in such a beauty spot. I am pleased to say Halton Borough Council have always bee nquick to remove the items when I have arranged for this to be done.
The main roads outside of the main entrance to Hale Village primary school now have single yellow waiting restrictions in place and platees nearby posts show the times these are in force. I have attended and issued a stern warning to one resident driver for blatant ignorance of yellow line restriction – being late does not constitute a good reason to park/waite here. I have and will issue Fixed Penaly Notices to those drivers who continue to where they know they shouldn’t 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 matters.
We want to encourage even more information – intelligence that we gather. If residents are not confident in apssing their details to us they can call Crimestoppers on 0800 555111 – they wont ask for your details and the information will still reach us. We would rather they have teh 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 reportng 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 reasured by the report hoever if you have 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 locl and they need 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 presntly 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 out website or via
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
www.askthe.police.uk (apps available)
