Crack Down On Wanted Criminals

Home » Newsroom » Crack Down On Wanted Criminals

Police in Knutsford are cracking down on those who are wanted by police or the Courts and are evading justice.

The dedicated Operation Hatay will take place from Monday 15th September for 7 days and will target persons who have failed to appear at Court, are wanted by the Police or have failed to pay court fines.

Inspector Mitchell will oversee the running of the operation in the Knutsford area of the Cheshire. She said "One of our policing priorities is to ensure victims of crime receive the best possible service from ourselves, and part of that process is ensuring that suspects are apprehended at the earliest possible opportunity, and those offenders who have been unlawfully at large for a period of time having evaded a Court appearance are brought to justice to face the consequences of their actions."

As part of the tactics to locate wanted people, officers will be visiting addresses of family, friends and known associates of those who are wanted, to warn them that they could face prosecution if they help the wanted person to evade police or harbour them in any way.
If you have any information about someone you believe is wanted please call Cheshire Police on the non-emergency number 101 or 999 if it is an emergency, alternatively you can ring crimestoppers in confidence on 0800 555 111
