Local Residents To Have Their Say on How Cheshire is Policed


I’m proud to present to you my draft Police and Crime Plan, which sets out Cheshire’s policing priorities for the next three years.



The overarching priorities from now until 2024 are to:
  • Prevent and tackle crime
  • Make Cheshire’s roads safer
  • Deliver justice for victims of crime
  • Protect vulnerable people
  • Improve public confidence in policing
  • Modernise our police force
The plan has been produced with Cheshire residents' priorities for community safety at its heart but I want your views on whether it will make Cheshire even safer

Read the plan here.

Take the survey to give your views.

The consultation closes at 23.59 hours on Sunday 15th August 2021. 

Once the consultation is closed, the responses will be analysed and amendments to the plan will be made before the final draft is presented at the September meeting of Cheshire’s Police and Crime Panel.

If you’d like to request a hard copy of the plan or survey, please email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..uk or call 01606 364000.

Warm Weather Crime Prevention


With the weather set to be very warm for the coming week, please take time to take care of your home security.

If you are enjoying the sun in your garden, make sure that your front door and any windows are not left open, as Burglars can be very quick and quiet entering your property.

At night before you go to bed, make sure all windows, especially those on the ground floor, and all doors are secured.

#enjoytheweather #beattheburglar

Covid Vaccine Passport Scam




We have been made aware of a Covid Vaccine Passport scam email going around that purports to be from the NHS and informs recipients that they can apply for their “Digital Coronavirus Passports”

Clicking on the link within the email, takes you to a convincing but fake NHS website that asks for personal and payment details. (for an admin fee)

The website has since been taken down, but in case similar emails/websites appear can you please circulate the attached alert to your residents, members, groups and mailing lists.

And just to reiterate, your vaccination status is obtained FREE through the NHS App, website or by calling the NHS on 119.

More information can be found on the gov.uk website;  
https://www.gov.uk/guidance/demonstrating-your-covid-19-vaccination-status-when-travelling-abroad

Please note that any Phishing scams can be reported to  SERS (Suspicious Email Reporting Service):  report@phishing.gov.uk

Best wishes

Mobile Phone Upgrade Scam


Dear Resident,
The National Fraud Intelligence Bureau are aware of an ongoing scam where consumers are being cold called by individuals impersonating employees of legitimate mobile network operators and suppliers.
Victims are offered early handset upgrades, or new contracts, at significant discounts. Once customers have been convinced that the deals are genuine and agree to proceed, suspects then ask for their online mobile account credentials, including log-ins, address and bank account details.
Suspects then place orders with genuine companies on behalf of victims, however select a different handset to that requested and have it shipped to the customer’s address.
Upon receipt, suspects assure victims that this has been an error and instruct them to ‘return’ the handset to a different address not affiliated to the mobile company. These addresses are usually residential.
Upon intercepting the ‘returned’ handsets, the suspects cease contact and victims find themselves stuck with no phone and liable for the entirety of a new contract taken out in their name.
The NFIB have received over 300 reports since January 2020 with reported losses in excess of £86,000.
What you need to do -
Cold calls about mobile upgrades and contracts - If you’re unsure that the person calling you is an official representative of the company they claim to be from, hang up and do not reveal any personal information.
Only contact your mobile network provider on a number you know to be correct. For example, 191 for Vodafone customers, 150 for EE customers, 333 for Three customers, 202 for O2 customers, 4455 for Tesco Mobile, 789 for Virgin Mobile and 150 for Sky Mobile.
If you receive a device that you did not order or expect, contact the genuine sender immediately. The details for this will be within the parcel.
NEVER post a device directly to a given address. All genuine Mobile Network Operators would send out a jiffy bag for you to return without you incurring additional cost.

If you have been a victim of fraud or cyber crime, report it to Actionfraud.police.uk, or by calling 0300 123 2040.
