Do you know what your children are up to in Northwich Town Centre?

During the past few weeks McDonalds Restaurant has reported incidents of ASB both inside and outside the premises. Teenagers have been aggressive and abusive to customers and staff.
We will not accept this type of behaviour and will seek to support the employees is they are abused. I would like you to answer the question and challenge your children about their behaviour when they leave their homes as they could find themselves being brought home or arrested by the Police for public order offences.

Have you checked and maintained your vehicle lights?

We have had a number of complaints regarding vehicles being used on the roads with defective lights being used during the hours of darkness. This is a risk to yourself and other road users particularly in the hours of darkness and poor weather conditions.
Remember to check your lights before you drive and ensure they are working and clean.
We will be enforcing the lighting regulations during the next few weeks issuing vehicle rectification notices and fixed penalties. So invest in light bulbs rather than fixed penalty notice.
Tackling business crime continues to be at the forefront of policing priorities for Cheshire.

On Friday 29th January 2016, in partnership with Northwich, Gadbrook Business Park and Winsford 1 to 5 Industrial Estate Business Improvement Districts, we held a Cybercrime and 'Fraud Due Diligence' workshop at Northwich Lifestyle Centre. Over twenty businesses attended to take advice on up and coming risks and threats from on line fraudsters.
This type of workshop is supporting John Dwyer, the Cheshire Police and Crime Commissioner, and his priority to support the business community of Cheshire. The Constabulary has a dedicated Economic Crime Unit with officers and staff investigating crimes, monitoring and sharing information with The National Fraud Intelligence Bureau and Action Fraud.  The team is a valuable asset to both residents and the business community and John Dwyer wants to build on this by providing funding and support to help the team prevent crime.
We recognise the far reaching effects, with livelihoods affected by loss of business or stolen stock – it certainly is not a victimless crime. He has funded a project involving the Economic Crime Unit and Chester University who will script and prepare two crime prevention DVD, s are  aimed at small businesses. He is looking forward to seeing the end results and getting the awareness out to our business communities in Cheshire.
The DVD, s are just one of the methods the Constabulary uses to help to prevent crime in commerce.
Officers and staff on the frontline build relationships with their local businesses and target areas where there have been issues, providing advice on how to make it more difficult for thieves. In addition, the recent 100 days of action on rural crime has been crucial in ensuring Cheshire rural business community is also supported.
From summer 2016 Cheshire businesses will have the opportunity to sign up to a newly launched fraud and Cyber Crime alerts program to receive crime prevention messages and alerts on fraud and other business crime affecting their area. The Economic Crime Unit will have a specific account which businesses can sign up to that will enable alerts to be received. The Unit will also provide the community with access to presentations via Cheshire Constabulary social media as part of an education program providing online safety advice. The aim is to reduce and prevent valued local businesses from becoming the victim of crime.
Anyone with any information to support the Cheshire Police in any crime or incident please call Cheshire Police on 101 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.

Inspector Dave Snasdell
