By Cheshire Police - PC Steve Trow - 29th July 2015 6:00am
This is a short introduction with information about your team of PCSO's and me who under the new Local policing unit restructure have been appointed to conduct neighbourhood policing in your parish. This contains contact information and identifies which officer covers each parish area.
By now you should be aware due to Home Office cuts in the national policing budget a number of changes have been implemented within Cheshire police regarding the way your neighbourhood policing team now operates as a LPU (Local Policing Unit).
The most obvious changes are all your LPU officers now book on at Blacon police station as a single deployment base and are briefed at the beginning of their shift and promptly deployed to their ward area. All LPU response officers are also based at Blacon and are deployed and briefed in the same manner.
Rural outstations at Frodsham, Mickle Trafford and Dragon Hall remain in use (and accessible to the public) by your local team and incident response officers.
Inspector Paul Loughlin is responsible for all neighbourhoods policing on the Chester LPU.
Inspector Brian Green is responsible for the response aspect of policing on the LPU
Sergeant Graeme Carvell has responsibility for all rural neighbourhoods policing on the Chester LPU area.
PC Trow has responsibility for the beat management for 3 of the rural ward areas consisting of 17 parish councils. PC Trow is supported by a team of 3 PCSO's covering the 3 ward areas.

How to contact us
I would advise you that the national 101 telephone number is the most appropriate method of contact for reporting all non-emergency incidents. Any previous direct telephone contact numbers you may have had under the old neighbourhood policing structure for PCSO's or supervisors are unlikely to remain in use therefore I request you delete them and use the 101 service.
Please continue to use 999 for all emergency contact.

Parish council meetings attendance.
Your appointed PCSO has been tasked with attending parish council meetings where possible. I am mindful there are many meetings held on the same date and our team have multiple parishes to cove,r therefore, it will not be possible to attend each and every meeting. If there are any issues of note that would prioritise our attendance please let me know in advance.
Public beat meetings & drop in surgeries.
Your appointed PCSO has been tasked with providing regular public meetings at key prominent locations in the rural villages. The dates and locations will be advertised on our
website (and village noticeboards where available).
You said & we did
Our aim is to police the areas that matter to you most and to tackle problems in your neighbourhoods. We need you to tell us where you want us and what you want us to do in your community. We welcome regular comments and suggestions for this approach to solving the problems in your parish and look forward to your suggestions.
