On Monday 22 January, Police and Crime Commissioner John Dwyer visited Latham Court in Sandbach to give a talk about his role and his former policing career.
The Commissioner discussed his 30-year career as a police officer, which saw him work in Nottinghamshire, the West Midlands and eventually Cheshire, as well as his current role as Police and Crime Commissioner.
The floor was then opened for questions which saw residents raise queries and concerns about their communities directly with the Commissioner.
Police and Crime Commissioner for Cheshire, John Dwyer, said:
“As Commissioner, it is crucial that I am accessible to Cheshire’s communities and that the public feel that their questions and concerns are being listened to.
“This presence allows for even stronger relationships between the public and the police, which is key to creating safe and positive communities.”
Following the talk, the residents surprised the Commissioner with a donation to Drugwatch Trust, a charity that he is a trustee for.
John Dwyer added:
“The residents’ donation was a really nice surprise. The charity focuses on providing education around drug and alcohol misuse, with the aim of encouraging people to make positive decisions.
“The donation is an extremely kind gesture and will contribute to making Cheshire an even safer place.”
