Cheshire Police last week launched its new approach to community policing, which will see dedicated police officers assigned to each of the county's 122 policing areas to tackle crime and support communities.
The initiative has been developed by Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) David Keane who is striving for Cheshire to be the leading police service for delivering community policing.
It builds on the already successfully delivered initiative to provide a dedicated PCSO and police community base for each area.
The new community police officers will work with their fellow PCSO, the wider policing team, and key partners to build relationships within the community, sharing the same mission to solve problems at their root-cause before they become more serious.
They will spend more time in the heart of their dedicated communities and be given time to deal with issues that matter most to local residents.
Another benefit of the changes is local residents will have more opportunities than ever before to directly contact their officers – either online, through social media, or face-to-face during police surgeries.
