Good afternoon,

Unfortunately in the Helsby area recently, there has been a number of break ins to sheds and out houses in the area of Kings Drive and Mountain View. Residents are being advised to lock any valuable equipment away and keep it out of sight. If you can keep it safe in your house.

If you do see any vehicle or person acting suspiciously in your area please call 101 immediately or 999 in an emergency to report it.

There will be an increase in patrols in the area both in marked and unmarked police vehicles and also on foot patrol.

With it being Christmas time please take extra precaution when coming in and out of your homes. If you need to defrost a car then please do not leave it running whilst you stay in your home. Keep all keys for vehicles out of sight and away from easily accessible points such as windows, doors and letter boxes.

On behalf of Cheshire Police wishing you a Merry Christmas.

PCSO Jonathan Finchett
PCSO Phil Brandreth

Chester Rural End of Month Update

November 2015

Welcome to the November edition of the Chester Rural Police update. 
May I take this opportunity to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. At this time of year, acquisitive crime (including theft and burglary) tends to increase. Please ensure that you are extra vigilant, doors and windows are locked and your properties are well-lit when you go out in the evening time. These simple preventative methods can reduce the chances of your homes being targeted.
As always, I am trying to communicate with as many of our rural residents as possible with these updates and I am looking to increase our subscribers to Cheshire Alert, so please highlight the advantages of signing up to friends/relatives in the area. Also, (as I know many of you already do) please circulate the updates to those who don’t have computer/e-mail access. 
As well as the regular Cheshire Alert updates, please be aware of further rural information on the Chester Local Policing Unit twitter page (@PoliceChester) and the Cheshire Police website (

Elton Ward
Overnight between 02/11/15 and 03/11/15 a storage container was broken in to on Poole Lane, Ince. A number of tools were stolen.
There have also been reports of a suspicious male wearing a hi-visibility jacket in the area of Whitefields, Elton. Please be vigilant at this time of year and report any suspicious activity
PCSO Connolly continues to work closely with the Community Speed Watch team. He has deployed the speed indication device in hot spot areas and has arranged to have new 30mph signs erected in Ash Road. We continue to take speeding seriously and repeat offenders will be dealt with abruptly by our Roads Policing Unit.

Action Fraud (Action Fraud, Administrator, National)


There has been a recent series of incidents whereby fraudsters either phone or attend the home address of elderly members of the public, claiming to be police officers.

The fake officer/s will claim that they are investigating a fraud which they believe the elderly person to be a victim of. The fake officer/s will then request the bank cards and personal identification numbers (PIN) of the victim and claim these are needed for investigation purposes. If the first contact was made by a phone call, the fake officer/s will tell the victim that someone will be over to collect the evidence. In one case the victim was instructed to attend their local bank and withdraw all of the money from their account. The suspect was left alone in the victim’s house whilst the victim carried out the instructions.
Protect Yourself

  • Before letting anyone into your home who claims to be from any law enforcement agency, ask to see their identity card and check it by calling 101.
  • Ask if they can attend at a pre-arranged time when a family member or friend can also be present.
  • If you receive a phone call from a police officer,  ask for their name and force and tell them you will call them back. Wait a few minutes and then use 101 to call them back through their force’s switchboard and verify their identity.
  • The Police will never ask for your PIN or passwords. Do not give this information to anyone.
  • The Police will never request that you withdraw/transfer any money to them.

If you believe that you have been a victim of fraud you can report it online or by telephone 0300 123 2040.
