Chester Rural End of Month Updates
October 2015

Welcome to the October edition of the Chester Rural Police update.
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 (

Over the past month there have been two incidents of theft in Frodsham town centre, whereby mobile phones have been taken from bags. Local officers are aware of this and will continue to provide a visible presence in the town. Please ensure you keep all valuables out of sight from potential offenders.

Monthly Priorities

The three monthly priorities for Chester Rural in November are:

Operation Treacle - Tackling ASB during Halloween and Bonfire Night

Operation Treacle has been launched across Chester to tackle increased ASB during Halloween and Bonfire Night. Local officers and PCSO's will increase patrols to reassure communities, reduce nuisance behaviour and deal with those responsible robustly.

Burglary Offences in the Tattenhall, Malpas and Farndon wards

Following an increase in shed and outbuilding burglary offences, rural officers will increase marked and unmarked patrols in the Tattenhall, Malpas and Farndon wards in an attempt to reduce crime, reassure the public and catch those responsible

Speeding and Parking Issues on Rural Roads

Speeding and parking issues remain a major priority for our rural communities. We will continue to use preventative and enforceable methods to improve the safety on our roads, deploying local officers and roads policing to problem areas

Any feedback on this Monthly Update will be gratefully received.

Kind Regards
