We received the latest bulletin, which is a round-up of highlights for the Police & Crime Commissioner David Keane and Cheshire Constabulary Chief Constable Darren Martland

"It continues to be a busy period for the force but we remain committed to working together to ensure we are delivering a police service which is focused on providing real neighbourhood policing, which includes an increased police presence in your communities.


This edition celebrates success for Cheshire Constabulary at the Royal Cheshire Show, highlights the launch of a joint emergency services roads policing campaign (Fatal 5) and focuses on the valuable work of volunteers across the Constabulary.

It also features details of the annual policing survey, discusses the issues that are affecting young people in the county and highlights the success of a recent high-profile court case involving an organised crime gang.

Cheshire Constabulary takes the crown at Royal Cheshire Show

Cheshire Constabulary has proved it is the cream of the crop when it was awarded first place for 'Best Trade Stand' at the Royal Cheshire Show. Thousands of visitors poured into the force's exhibition stand at the Tabley Showground for one of the biggest agricultural events in the country. It provided the perfect opportunity for the Constabulary to engage with the public and share vital crime prevention and safety messages.

Police volunteers celebrated at special event


An event was held to celebrate the volunteers who give up their free time to help keep Cheshire safe. Police volunteers were welcomed to a special event, which coincided with national Volunteers' Week, at the force's headquarters in Winsford. It was an opportunity to say 'thank you' to the many volunteers who have supported Cheshire Constabulary and the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner (OPCC) over the past year.

Emergency Services join together to launch Fatal 5 campaign


Chief Officers from the three top emergency services have spoken out about their concerns in the number of people being killed on the roads in Cheshire. They have warned that more people could lose their lives on our roads if motorists don't think about how they drive, consider the conditions of the road and assess their surroundings.
In 2018, 46 people lost their lives as a result of a collision. So far this year 22 people have died, which is more than one a week.

PCC to tackle bullying with specialist commission


A commission to look into the issue of bullying is being established by Cheshire's police and crime commissioner David Keane. The commissioner wants to bring together a team of community representatives to look into the issue which he describes as 'an epidemic among all generations in our society'.

Report tells police leaders what issues are affecting young people


A report to Cheshire's police and crime commissioner produced by young people is highlighting the key issues for under 25s in the county. The report by the Cheshire Youth Commission was produced following a consultation with more than 2,000 young people across Cheshire. They found that hate crime, unhealthy relationships and the misuse of social media are just some of the areas of concern for the younger generation.

Gang caught with £20million worth of cocaine on M6 jailed

An organised crime group who conspired to supply the largest in land cocaine seizure to be sold across the North of England -- including Warrington -- have been jailed. Jamie Simpson and three of his gang -- Clare Smith, Andrew Daniels and Dean Brettle -- were sentenced to a total of almost 35 years after they loaded £20 million worth of cocaine into a van in Rochester, Kent, to be transported to Warrington.

Have your say in the annual policing survey

PCC David Keane has launched a public survey to obtain the views of Cheshire residents to find out their priorities for policing and community safety. The commissioner will use the survey as a catalyst to review his Police and Crime Plan to ensure it still meets the needs of Cheshire's residents.
