Let’s work together to tackle crime in our rural communities Date published: 25th January 2016 3.33pm

We’re here to support our communities is one of the commitments from the Chief Constable and Police & Crime Commissioner.


Tackling crime isn’t something that we can do alone.


With this in mind, we’re asking you for your help at an upcoming Rural and Wildlife Crime Conference.


Police & Crime Commissioner John Dwyer said, “Although crime is falling, here in Cheshire we recognise that rural crime can have a devastating impact on its victims. It can be felt on a personal level, affect people’s livelihood and their way of life. This is why it is a priority in my policing plan. I’d encourage people to get involved and come to the Rural and Wildlife Crime Conference. By working together we can tackle rural crime at its root cause.”


Chief Constable Simon Byrne said, “Last autumn we ran our ‘100 Days of rural crime’ campaign, working with our local communities to prevent crime in our rural areas. In 2016 we want to do more, not only to re-iterate that we’re here for you, when and where you need us, but to listen to your views and tackle your issues head on.”


The event will take place on Monday 29 February at Willington Hall, Tarporley, CW6 0NB. Registration begins at 9.30am. You’ll be able to hear from senior officers about their experiences, hear how we’ll tackle rural crime and receive some crime prevention advice. There will also be opportunities for you to tell us about your issues.
