Daresbury Local Policing Unit (Moore, Sandymoor, Preston Brook, Daresbury, Windmill Hill)

The summer is HERE!  Don’t forget your factor 50 or the umbrella!

As your new PCSO, just a little not to tell you that I am settlingin nicely  and getting around to meet my new community.

Off road bikes

As you know or have seen we do still have the ongoing issues with off road bikes some SECTION 59’S have been issued and a number of BIKE SEIZURES. This will be an ongoing problem especially with all the nice weather we have already had and this AMAZING summer were going to have.
Op Scrambler, which is aimed at tackling off road bikes, is still ongoing.

Anti-Social Behavior

We have had a few issues with ASB over the past month, Sandymoor school playing fields were being used by youths to play football when it is locked but since being spoken to we have not had any other issues.


There hasn’t been many issues with drugs this month but all the usual hotspots are being targeted on a daily basis. There has been a small problem with youths taking cannabis into schools to try with their friends but we are targeting this and doing our best to stop it.
We had a small dumping of Cannabis plants at the top of Keckwick lane which was dealt with and the plants were destroyed.

Roads Policing

Officers have been out with the TruCam (Speed Camera) in different areas this month with a number of drivers not adhering to the 30 mph & 60 mph speed limits.

Schools in the area will continue to be regularly visited by the local PCSO to assist with parking issues, can we please just nudge people about parking on double yellows and Zig-Zags it really is so Dangerous for the children and I won’t take any excuse. I am personally parking in car parks which people have allowed schools to use on drop off and pick up times, I will be clamping down with fixed penalty notices as will the other PCSO’s covering the area.


All surgeries will be getting held at the tier 2, (Sandymoor Community School), from now on but we are hoping to change this in the future to the new café  which opening up at Phoenix Park.

I have been told that some people in further places can’t make it to surgeries so I will be running a Mobile surgery out of the Police van in locations I can find out are issues, so drop me an email if there is anywhere I can help in this matter.
Parish Council Meetings will be attended, when I am available, to discuss any Policing issues.

Parking Issues

We have had an issue with parking on Tudor road, Manor Park with numerous vehicles parking dangerously. However, since addressing this, by working with the local businesses, people have been parking more reasonable. I will continue to monitor this area and deal accordingly in the future.
