Community Update

Just thought I’d get some updates, information and requests out there to you all.
We have had some ‘rogue traders’ in the area of Cuddington who have deliberately targeted the elderly and vulnerable. Tradesman have carried out some cold calling and claimed to have carried some work. They have then returned to the address and obtained numerous cheques from the victim resulting in a loss of several thousand pounds. As far as family members can make out, no work has been carried out. Please be mindful of door step tradesman and as always look out for your family, friends and neighbours. 
Speed enforcement will continue to be carried out by your local PCSO, Nichola Devey along with PC Claire Murgatroyd. Speeding is one of the elements in ‘The Fatal Four’ which means it’s a contributing factor to deaths caused on our roads. The only way to combat this is by getting out there, educating drivers either by enforcement or otherwise.  
Drug activity has been targeted at the start of this year with plain clothed officers operating in your area. This will never go away and behaviour around the buying and selling of drugs plagues our communities. It brings with it an increase in crime, antis social behaviour and allows criminals to earn a living whilst other suffer. During January we had a week of action which resulted in a number of arrests and a good amount of disruption. This took place throughout the local policing unit and will continue to happen as and when we have the resources. Intelligence from yourselves remains critical for our success and I would encourage anyone to please report anything of this nature either via the Cheshire Police website or via 101.
As part of the Police & Crime Commissioners commitment to reducing rural crime, I have been asked to look at some initiatives for my policing area to tackle rural crime. It’s a known entity that our hard working farmers often don’t report matters to the police which often we need to know about on the basis that they don’t have time or think we’ll do nothing about it. This is a force wide initiative and the key to succeeding will be information sharing with our neighbouring towns and villages. If anyone knows any farmers or persons who are affected by rural crime matters then please feel free to pass them my details, so I can begin to build up a good base of community contacts.
