Information sent on behalf of Cheshire Constabulary

Good Morning and a very happy new year from myself and Georgina,
As you a appreciate it was a very busy Christmas period for ourselves and during the month of December police were called out to Norton South 147 times . This ranged from simple advice to persons being arrested for possession of drugs . Also over the festive period we had an increase in domestic incidents , support was offered to victims and offenders were dealt with robustly .
With winter seemingly here to stay for a while let’s remind you of some tips in relation to car safety.
Are your tyres over the legal limit of 1.6mm? – Why? – Slippery roads are hard to drive on at the best of times but you need at the very least that 1.6mm to have any chance of grip on the road. Less than 1.6mm is illegal and you could be on the receiving end of points and a fine.
Is your washer bottle full? – Why? – At this time in the year the roads are wet and full of grit, salt and muck. Seeing out of the windscreen can prove difficult, however, with your washer bottle full it will be easy to clean. An empty washer bottle could also see you being fined.
Do you have a ‘just in case’ kit in the boot? – Why? – This is just a preference and not law but have you heard about the time the motorway was shut in the snow stranding 100s of motorists? Blankets, snacks and water would be helpful in this instance until help arrived.

As some people may have new mobile phones here is some good advice on how to register them .
Immobilise is the world's largest free register of possession ownership details. These details are searchable by all UK Police Forces and form a very effective tool in helping to identify and return recovered, lost or stolen personal property to its rightful owner. These details are held on a secure system that is approved to Government standards.
Can I register my mobile phone? –Yes, you will need to create an account that you have total control over. You will need the IMEI number, make and model of your phone. You can enter other property on your account and will need descriptions, serial numbers and photographs of your prized possessions.
How do I get the IMEI number of my phone? - The IMEI is usually found printed inside the battery compartment of the handset, except on iPhones where it is located on a pull-out tray. It can also be displayed on the screen of the phone by entering *#06# into the keypad. If your phone is new, the IMEI should also be labelled on the side of the box. Your network provider can also provide you with your IMEI.
What happens when my phone is registered? - Should your phone be lost or stolen, and Police recover it, they can quickly establish who the real owner is and restore the property.
Can I highlight my phone as stolen on my account? - Yes, Immobilise has a feature for the owner of a phone to instantly update the status on their account as lost or stolen. It is still essential that you report it to your network and police if stolen.
