From 6th July 2015, Cheshire Police have undergone a significant change, moving from 3 Basic Command Units (West Cheshire, East Cheshire, North Cheshire) to 8 Local Policing Units (Chester, Ellesmere Port, Warrington, Widnes, Runcorn, Macclesfield, Crewe, Northwich).

The new Chester Rural beat team work as part of the Chester Local Policing Unit, which is managed by Chief Inspector Paul Williams, Inspector Paul Loughlin and Inspector Brian Green. My team are dedicated to serving the residents of rural Chester and will be happy to engage with our communities, partnerships and town/parish councils to provide the best possible service.   

To fall in line with Council Wards, boundaries have now changed, meaning there are now 10 beat areas covered by Chester Rural. 

For those that are technically minded, the new beat areas and boundaries can be found by copying the link below, selecting map data, council and democracy and selecting wards:

For those that prefer straight talking, here is a list of the beats and the officers dedicated:

Kingsley Local News
 

  • Reports of suspicious males seen on Dark Lane, Kingsley looking at some of the properties. Males were described as in their 20’s and all had their hoods up. If you see anything suspicious like this then please call 101 and let your local officer know.
  • Parking on Hollow Lane outside the shops on the double yellow lines is still an ongoing problem. Please do not park on the yellow lines as it causes an obstruction to other road uses and also drivers trying to turn onto Hollow Lane.

We did: Your local officer has continued to carry out speed enforcement in the village especially along Middle Lane, Hollow Lane and Top Road.

Hatchmere, Crowton, Aston & Newton Local News
With these areas being fairly new to me I have been going around trying to introduce myself to key people in the areas. I am hoping to build strong relationships with the residents and make sure my face is one everyone knows. 
I have been patrolling Aston Lane, Aston due to some recent suspicious vehicles being reported.
In Crowton I have been out with the speed gun and also deployed our speed activation device to make motorists aware of the speed they are travelling and whether it is within the speed limit. 

I have been carrying out speed enforcement in all these areas and also trying to find problem areas and times and when speeding is at its worse. If you have suggestions or would like to report a time when speeding on the roads seems to be at its worse, please let me know via my email above.

July 2015 Monthly Newsletter for Kingsley 
 

As the local Police Community Support officer for Kingsley I have decided to write monthly entries to let you know of any issues or problems in the area and what I have been doing with my time.

 

Fortunately there have been no major incidents in the village this past month and everything has been quiet. Let’s hope it stays this way. I do still urge all residents if you see anything or anyone that you feel to be suspicious please contact 101 immediately or email me directly.

 

Speeding has been a main complaint this past month especially on the roads Top Road, Hollow Lane by the school and also Middle Lane. I have been working closely with Parish Councillor David Vickers and some other residents to devise a plan of action moving forward. Until then I will continue to deploy our speed activation device in the village which highlights to drivers the speed they are travelling. Along with this I will also continue to go out with the speed gun at various times of the day. We are working with the local council also to get statistics from all the roads which calculate the average speed of drivers and the peak times for speeding. From this information we will be able to collaborate it and assess the situation a bit more clearly.

 

Parking around the shops in Kingsley is still a problem especially on the double yellow lines. This has been an ongoing problem since I started but I will continue to educate drivers on the risks and problems with parking on double yellow lines. I will also be working with the Community Safety Wardens who have the power to issue tickets for parking on the yellow lines.

 

I am still holding Police Beat Management Meetings monthly at Gibson Mill coffee shop and also the Community Centre. My next meetings are on 22nd August at 11am at Gibson Mill and 12pm at the Community Centre. I always advertise my local meetings on the Village Notice Board, on the village Facebook page and in the local businesses.  I urge all residents if you have a problem or want to report something please come and see me at these times as I would love to be of assistance to you and help you. I really hope moving forward we can continue to work closely to help make the village better for all.

The National Fraud Intelligence Bureau (NFIB) has received intelligence regarding two new Lottery Fraud letters/email attachments (Scam 1 & Scam 2) using the 2016 Rio Olympics as a theme.
 
The scams try to trick people into believing they have won the following:
 
Scam 1: An online lottery prize of £650,000 and a trip to Brazil to watch the Olympics as the recipient’s email address was chosen out of a possible ten million at random.
 
Scam 2: An online lottery prize of £820,000 and a trip to Brazil to watch the Rio Carnival and the Olympics as the recipient’s winning numbers 8 17 34 38 42 and 51 were selected.
 
In order to collect the winnings the recipient is requested to contact:
 
Scam 1: 
Mr Dima Robert
MillMan Street, WC1N 3JB. London A5200.
Tel: +447035973561

Protect yourself from lottery fraud

  • Never respond to any such communication. If you have not entered a lottery then you cannot have won it.
  • Official lotteries in other countries operate in much the same way as the UK’s National Lotto. 
  • No official lotteries that we know of contact people to tell them of their win.
  • We do not know of any official lottery operators who ask for fees to collect winnings.  Any request for a fee payment is a good indication that someone is trying to defraud you.
  • Never disclose your bank details or pay fees in advance.
  • If they have provided an email address to respond to, be very suspicious of addresses such as @hotmail.com or @yahoo.com or numbers beginning with 07 because these are free to get hold of.
  • Genuine lotteries thrive on publicity. If they ask you to keep your win a secret, it is likely to be a fraud.
  • Many fraudulent lotteries have bad spelling and grammar – see this as a warning that fraudsters are at work. 

If you believe that you have been a victim of fraud you can report it online http://www.actionfraud.police.uk/report_fraud or by telephone 0300 123 2040.
