Police and Crime Commissioner for Cheshire, John Dwyer, is visiting each of Cheshire Constabulary’s nine Local Policing Units (LPUs). On Wednesday 16 November he met with officers and staff Crewe LPU, which covers Audlem and Nantwich too, to discuss issues in their local area and how he can support the team.
The Commissioner met with Chief Inspector (CI) Fez Khan along with other officers and staff from different teams who provided a current overview of the issues that the LPU is experiencing, as well as their activities and objectives.
The visit also provided an opportunity for the Commissioner to highlight the priorities outlined in the Police and Crime Plan and discuss how they were being addressed in the area, as well as the support he could provide to officers and staff within the LPU and their local communities.
Police and Crime Commissioner for Cheshire, John Dwyer, said:
“I’m really grateful to CI Khan and his team for welcoming me to Crewe and telling me about their successes and challenges of life on the front line.
“It’s my role to take this feedback on board and ensure the Constabulary is able to work in the most effective and efficient way, so that the public receive the outstanding police service they deserve.”
“These meetings will also allow me to discuss how the public’s priorities for policing, as set out in my Police and Crime Plan, are being achieved across each of Cheshire’s LPUs”
Chief Inspector at Crewe LPU, Fez Khan said:
“It was great to welcome the Commissioner to Crewe and to have the opportunity to outline the successes and challenges that we are experiencing as an LPU as well highlight some of the work we do with our communities and partner agencies.
“It was also important that our officers and staff were able to discuss their individual roles and their efforts in serving the public as well as discuss what additional support the Commissioner may be able to provide the LPU.”
During the meeting, the team spoke to the Commissioner about their links with local communities and how these helped to build intelligence and improve the response the police are able to offer to local residents.
John Dwyer added:
“I want to get behind our officers and PCSOs in Crewe in their efforts to make our communities even safer and I’m grateful to every officer, PCSO and and member of staff who I know work tirelessly.
“There was lots of positive areas to discuss, including the work coming from my Safer Streets Fund success, but I know there is always room for improvement so I am committed to working with the LPUs and the wider Constabulary to ensure this momentum continues.”
