Become a Macclesfield Community Reporter Date published: 13th September 2018 8.17am

Macclesfield Local Policing Unit invites you to be a Community Reporter.

  • Are you interested in policing in your local area?
  • Are you willing to give up a few hours of your time to go out with your local officers?
  • Do you like to tweet or blog and would be able to do so whilst out with officers?

We are offering members of the Macclesfield community the chance to get a unique insight into policing, whilst being able to share their personal experience online. 

What is community reporting?

Community reporting allows members of our community to see first-hand the work that goes into making the community you live and work in a safe place to be. The project gives you an opportunity to ride along with a member of our beat management team and report on what is going on via social media.

Who is the pilot for?

  • Members of the Macclesfield community with an interest in what is going on locally, and who want to see first-hand the work our beat management teams do.
  • You must be over 16 and available for a few hours a day over the coming months.
  • You must be willing to come with an open mind and be prepared to share your experience with others.
  • You need to have access to a personal or corporate social media account or blog. 

Do I need any training?

No training is required. However, all reporters will be given a briefing prior to their patrol to ensure that risk is minimised and that we are able to maintain and maximise the integrity of the scheme.
