Lindsey Whitehead has sent us some seasonal advice to be safe and secure as Christmas approaches. Cheshire Police are keeping an eye on things as usual and they have Operation Caldas which is a high visibility patrol on foot in the town centre of Knutsford.
We will also see a bigger presence on our streets of PCSOs, Police officers and special constables, all helping to keep us safe.
Cheshire Police ask that everybody keeps bags and purses zipped up so that criminals can not target you. Last year, there was an increase of gangs targeting iPhone users. These criminals waited for phones to be placed down on tables in cafes, hairdressers and bars and used a distraction method, mostly asking for directions or some kind of other advise, whilst covering the phone and then making off it.
Cheshire Police are also have Operation Blue Xmas.
This is a night-time operation for patrols and they will be looking at drink driving offences.
People will soon be partying and they are asking that we make arrangements for our journeys home in advance of the evening.
The police are often called to incidents where people walk home alone, leaving themselves vulnerable to crime.
We hope you have a wonderful Xmas.
All we ask is that you stay safe and be responsible.
PCSO Lindsey Whitehead
