The statue of the soldier has had its right arm and rifle broken off. Police have identified four juveniles responsible for the damage and we will be seeking a restorative justice outcome with the juveniles and their parents regarding the incident.
Drug offences
On the afternoon of Sunday 28th February 2016 a male was seen acting suspiciously on a push-bike in the Castle area of Northwich, suspected of being involved in the supply of drugs in the area. Two PSCO's, also riding on push-bikes, conducting high visibility patrols followed the male who was eventually detained by Police. Recovered on him were 83 street deal bags of heroin and crack cocaine and cannabis. He was arrested and later charged with possession with intent to supply heroine and crack cocaine, possession of cannabis and assault on a PCSO. Nathan Knapper 18 years of no fixed address was remanded in custody to appear before Chester Magistrates Court.
This was excellent work by the two PCSO, s being out and about in the community.
Court Result
A 42 year old male Darren Sysum from Northwich, has been made the subject of a Criminal Behaviour Order (CBO) as a result of an application by Northwich ASB Unit, Northwich Police Station.
The Order was granted at Chester Magistrates Court on Tuesday 1st February, with a number of conditions that Sysum must abide by, for a period of 5 years.
SYSUM IS Prohibited from:
1) Use or encourage others to use, any foul, abusive, insulting and offensive threatening or intimidating
Language or behaviour in any public place
2) From 4pm on the 4th March 2016 not to enter Northwich as bounded by Whalley Road, Church Road,Chester Way, Leicester Street, Watling Street, Weaver Way and Barons Quay Road.

For some time we have been working closely with partner agencies to support Mr Sysum and he has been given ample opportunity to engage with support services. However, it became necessary to apply for this Order due to his continued behaviour which was having a detrimental effect on the emergency services, local businesses and the public. We are also pleased that the Order contains a positive requirement for him to engage with services, who can help and provide on-going support
Anyone who witnesses any breaches of the order should report it to police on 101.
Opportunity for young people aged 14-25 to join the Cheshire Youth Commission 2016
We are currently recruiting for the Cheshire Youth Commission on Police and Crime, which is a new initiative set up by the Police and Crime Commissioner, John Dwyer.
The purpose of the Youth Commission is to enable young people to support, challenge and inform the work of the Police and Crime Commissioner and Cheshire Constabulary. The Youth Commission will help to address priority issues, such as reducing offending and improving the relationship with the police. The Commissioner is committed to working in partnership with young people to ensure their views help to shape decisions about policing and crime in Cheshire.
This is an excellent opportunity for young people to gain new knowledge, skills and experience. Members of the Youth Commission will play an important role in helping to run events and gather the opinions of other young people about police and crime.   
The Youth Commission is aimed at young people aged 14-25 years who want to make a difference to their community.  We’re looking for a diverse group of young people from different backgrounds, including those who may have direct experience of the criminal justice system or who have been victims of crime.    All documents needed to apply for this opportunity are attached. We’ve tried to make this simple and accessible for everyone and would very much appreciate it if you could encourage any young person who you feel would benefit from this experience to apply and support him or her in filling out the application.
You can also download the application documents from the link below:
Cheshire Youth Commission

If you have any questions please email:  Rose Dowling or Kaytea Budd-Brophy.
Please note, the deadline for application forms is Tuesday 8th March 2015 
Action Fraud

Action Fraud has been receiving reports of an advanced fee fraud whereby suspects phone a member of the public and claim to be calling on behalf of the UK (or British) Government Grant Department.  They go on to state that the individual has won a Good Citizen Award – of typically £8,000 – and that the grant can be released for a fee (of around £210).
Fortunately, very few members of the public have lost any money as a result of this scam but have reported to Action Fraud in order to help build a picture of this fraud and protect others from falling victim to it. 
Protect yourself:

There is no genuine ‘Good Citizen Award’ scheme in the UK that operates by cold calling “winners” and asking for an upfront fee to release a grant.
  • If you receive a call that claims to represent such a scheme, it is a scam. End the phone call – do not give out any personal or financial data.
If you, or anyone you know, have been affected by this fraud or any other scam, report it to Action Fraud by calling 0300 123 2040 or visiting
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.
