The 5 incidents are not linked and were at different locations on the ward.
Any suspicious activity should be reported on 101.
Tru-Cam enforcement (Speed awareness and, if appropriate, penalties) training has been undertaken. I will be engaging in Tru-Cam operations on a weekly basis from later this month.

We are keen over the coming months to try and advertise the introduction of Neighbourhood Watch schemes in Mersey area via the Cheshire Alert web page.
If any members of Cheshire Alert would like to set-up and become a coordinator of a watch scheme then we as the police will offer support and advice in any way we can, my e-mail is attached at the bottom of this newsletter and I look forward to hearing from anyone who wishes to set-up a scheme that we can get involved with.
