New faces on the beat

Home » Latest News » New faces on the beat

You will be seeing some new faces on the beat in the coming months.

Like all public services, the Constabulary has had to make substantial savings to meet Government spending targets. We have made over £19 million in savings in the last two years by changing and improving the way we work and more will come in the next two years.

Inevitably, we have had to reduce officer and police staff numbers, but we promised communities that we would maintain our neighbourhood policing presence. We have done this by moving officers from backroom or headquarters roles into the neighbourhood teams.

We are now appointing 75 new officers to replace some of the police men and women who have retired during the last year. Fifteen will be experienced officers coming in from other forces, bringing specialist skills and expertise to Cheshire.

Sixty new officers will be welcomed into the Constabulary and the first of these begin training in September. These are the fresh faces and enthusiastic new PCs who will join the neighbourhood teams in the coming months.

I hope you will join me in welcoming them and, when they do appear in your local area as 'the new bobby', provide them with all the support that you can.
