Cheshire Police — December: Click on the file to download the full newsletter

As we enter the month of December the demands on your Local Policing Unit escalate considerably with deteriorating weather conditons, longer nights, Christmas Parties ( Not ours !) and seasonal increases in shoplifting and alcohol related disorder.

We also realise that this time of year can increase the feelings of solitude that many of our more vulnerable residents experience. This has an impact not just on the Police but also on the other emergency services who are equally as stretched as we are.

We would ask that you all consider ways in which you can do your part to ease the burden on the emergency services during this period by doing your bit to help the community. This is not just about ensuring your house is locked and secure when you are out to ward off the burglars . Instead it may involve you checking on the welfare of an elderly or lonely neighbour, ensuring you take a taxi rather than your car if you have a festive drink or ensuring that your car is safe to drive in poor conditons.

All these small things have a disproportionate effect on the number of emergency incidents we attend each day and could result in us having more me to deal with the situations and people that really need us at this time of year.

Wishing you all a safe and peaceful Christmas

Rob Dickinson
Local Policing Unit Commander, Macclesfield LPU.
