Some of the best intelligence the local police receive comes from within our own communities. A great deal of evidence and materials are needed to put together a case for searches or warrants, and the information provided by people living and working in Congleton is vital to help create a full intelligence picture. You can provide information to Cheshire Police in many ways, including anonymously through Crimestoppers, tel: 0800 555 111 or online; via 101 (costs 15p per call) or via one of the Congleton Police surgeries advertised on the Cheshire Police website – supported by local Police Community Support Officers (PCSOs).
The PCSOs for wards covered by Congleton Police Station are: Jessica Shore, Chris Munro, Georgia Creed, Julia Short and David Bell. Congleton also has six dedicated Beat Management Police Constables; Helen Weeks, Helen Hood, Emma Burns, Kate Ritchie, Ian Bell and Garry Charnock. The Beat Management Sergeant is Keith Graham and the Inspector is Penny Jones. Messages can be left for any of the officers at Congleton Police Station in Market Square.
Between January and July this year, the team dealt with 1219 reported crimes in the Congleton Town Council area. Violence and Sexual Offences, Public Order and Anti-Social Behaviour were the largest groups of reported crime.
