Police update April 2019

From PCSO Makin

Anti-Social Behaviour:

Some reports of youths causing some issues in the Village Hall in Waverton. Spoken to the parents about this so hopefully it will stop, I will continue to monitor though.

Fortunately there is nothing else to report for the other Villages in regards to Anti-Social Behaviour. Any issues that I’m not aware of then please do let me know or ring it in to 101.

I will be trying to visit the Schools at drop off and pick up times to try and help alleviate the parking issues we are having; doing this is only a temporary fix though as due to my shift pattern I cannot be there consistently.

Community Speed Watch:

I now have use of a second enforceable TruCam thanks to Helsby Parish Council who have let me use it. This means I will be out more and more conducting speed enforcement on our roads. I will divide this time as fairly as possible between all wards; Richard Moulds from Waverton community speed watch is coming out with me soon to do an hour of speed enforcement on one of the problem roads in Waverton which I am looking forward to. Again I will extend this invite out to anybody else on the Parish Council and or community speed watch group to come out with me for an hour or so.

I wanted to start looking at the bigger picture in regards to speed watch; a thought going around was that we look at it as a wider issue rather than each individual village. For example, somebody speeding on Moor Lane in Rowton will continue to speed when they get in to Waverton, and somebody speeding in Christleton will continue speeding when they reach the next village etc. etc.

I am proposing a broader approach between all councils and speed watch groups with this, if Waverton speed watch group decide to go out one day and use their speed device in Christleton, or Mickle Trafford liaise with Littleton and so on it will be more helpful than focusing on individual villages if this makes sense? Like I said before, I will be out with the enforceable TruCam as often as possible and I would really like the support of the speed watch groups and to start working together more and more to tackle this. What happens in one village will affect the next.

I am sure you have all heard of the tragic RTC we had on Guy Lane, Waverton on 17/04/2019 where a young man tragically died as a result. I was out conducting speed enforcement around the corner from Guy Lane two hours earlier. The amount of people stopping to tell me it was a waste of time to be out with a speed gun was shocking. I am trying to educate people about the fact we are not there with the aim to give out points and fines, we are out there to try and prevent anything like this happening and to keep our roads safer for everybody.

Social Media:

The Police and Crime Commissioner is still wanting PCSO’s to be active on the Police social media accounts – the one relevant to you would be ‘Chester Villages Police’ on Facebook or Twitter.

Police surgery:

Upcoming Police Surgeries for May are as follows:


Friday 3rd May 6pm

Police Update March 2019

Monthly update from PCSO Makin

General

Myself, Rob Boulton and Sgt Collinson attended a Careers event for Children who don’t have the usual career options ahead of them due to various disadvantages in their lives at the Cheshire View, this was a really positive interaction with the children and I think some of them were genuinely inspired to look at Policing as a career afterwards.

Foot patrols around the Villages are being received well by residents and I’m looking forward to continuing to build a strong relationship with the communities.

The only thing worth noting is the amount of Fraud we are seeing with our elderly and vulnerable residents. Not just villages but all across the country. We are trying to tackle this but please be vigilant and pass it on to anyone else that if they are concerned about a suspicious email or telephone call, ring it in to 101.

Anti-Social Behaviour:

No reports coming through of Anti-Social Behaviour in the Villages, I am continuing to patrol any areas that have had problems in the past and a resident in Waverton mentioned kids hang out in the bowling green of an evening so I will check here when I am on late shifts.

Community Speed Watch:

I have continued to focus on speeding motorists on our Village roads and will be out with the TruCam this weekend. If you have any roads that you think need attention please pass that on to me so I can head out with TruCam.

Social Media:

The Police and Crime Commissioner has said that he wants all PCSO’s to be active on the Police social media accounts. This hasn’t changed since last month so if you don’t already and would like to see what I’m up to day to day then follow Chester Villages Police on Facebook or Twitter.

Police surgery:

Upcoming Police Surgeries for March are as follows:

Police update February 2019

From PCSO Makin

Hi all, please see below the monthly update for February.

General

I have spent some time trying to find people breaking in to an abandoned farm house in Rowton on the A41, the owner is not available and it has been left in a state of disarray for a number of years now, recently having people break in for whatever reason. We have contacted Fire about it to see if it is a hazard so I’ll keep Rowton Parish Council updated on this.

I have been out in Christleton a lot meeting different groups of people, I have started to build a relationship with the Community Payback team by attending the Church grounds with them if I am on shift at the same time they are working there. Myself, Rob Boulton and Sgt Collinson are attending a Careers event for Children who don’t have the usual career options ahead of them due to various disadvantages in their lives. We are looking forward to this and hopefully offer some direction for the kids attending.

Foot patrols around the Villages are being received well by residents, I rarely find a time when I don’t stop to chat with people when out and about.

There was a burglary in Guilden Sutton recently, I have done reassurance visits and visited the neighbours to offer some security advice and drop some leaflets off.

Anti-Social Behaviour:

No reports coming through of Anti-Social Behaviour in the Villages, although Cotton Hall, a charity not far from Waverton and Guilden Sutton have had a spate of issues lately with the youths on site. I am working hard to come up with solutions to this and thankfully it doesn’t seem to be spilling out in to neighbouring villages. I am continuing to patrol any areas that have had problems in the past but there isn’t anything worth noting with regards to this.

Community Speed Watch:

I have continued to focus on speeding motorists on our Village roads and I have had a member of the community email to ask if I can target School Lane and Guilden Sutton lane as cars are constantly speeding along here.

Again, I am happy to work with any of you in this department, so please do get in touch if you want to be involved, or if you have any roads that you think need attention please pass that on to me so I can head out with TruCam.

Social Media:

The Police and Crime Commissioner has said that he wants all PCSO’s to be active on the Police social media accounts. This hasn’t changed since last month so if you don’t already and would like to see what I’m up to day to day then follow Chester Villages Police on Facebook or Twitter.

Police surgery:

Upcoming Police Surgeries for March are as follows:

8th March – 09.30

13th March – 18.00

22nd March – 18.00

29th March – 09.30


I have said this before but if I haven’t yet attended a Parish Council Meeting in your Village it is because I am not on duty at the time it is being held and we are not expected to deviate shifts to accommodate this. I am invested in our Villages and I am working my hardest to keep our roads safe along with every other aspect of my role, so please don’t think that I am intentionally not making an effort to be involved with the meetings.

If you would like to meet me to discuss anything please do pop in to one of the Surgeries listed above or email me and we can set up a meeting when it suits both parties.

Kind Regards,

PCSO Makin
