Local Police visibility

Home » Newsroom » Local Police visibility

Over the coming months there will be a greater visibility of the police as a consequence of some changes:

  • Our PCSO will not have to start and finish shifts in Blacon
  • Shift patterns are changing with emphasis on day and late shifts but not the middle of the
    night except for speed enforcement.
  • The PCSO will be given marked vans which will each carry a bike!
  • The number of unmarked vehicles will reduce to be replaced by marked vehicles
  • Ward-walks and surgeries will continue to provide reassurance, problem solving
    and prevention.

Speeding is an issue on many roads, particularly heavy vehicles in the middle of the night on the A54, A51 and A41. The police intend to step up their monitoring to deter this activity.
The police also want to know where parishes want speeding checked and at what times. Ideally they would like communities with problems to form community speed watch groups. Volunteers would be trained by the police and operate during daylight hours. The latest "true" camera costs £1,000 and is very effective as it produces the evidence needed to prosecute.
Do we have any "speeding hotspots" around and in Tarvin Parish and could volunteer community speed-watch groups help?
Any views?
