Starting last September Police Community Support Officer Liz Chesters covers the Dane Valley area, which includes Goostrey.
Speedwatch Group – you may have seen them on Main Road yesterday:
“One of our local policing unit priorities is engaging with our Community Speedwatch groups. Community Speedwatch is a national initiative where active members of communities join with the support of the police to monitor speeds of vehicles using speed detection devices. Vehicles exceeding the speed limit are referred to our local policing unit with the aim of educating drivers to reduce their speeds.
In cases where education is blatantly ignored and evidence of repeat or excessive offences is found, enforcement and prosecution follow. Not only is this a great way of getting involved with your community and residents, it is a pro-active approach to dealing with speeding issues in your area.” PCSO Liz Chesters
*If you are interested in joining Goostrey’s Community Speedwatch group please ring PCSO Liz Chesters on 101 and leave a message or contact your parish council for more details.
PCSO Liz Chesters has started to re-introduce PCSO surgeries at primary and high schools, she hopes to meet with local young people and find out what they would like to see from her as their PCSO.
“These meetings give students the opportunity to come and speak to me about any concerns they may have in a safe and private environment, or any questions they have about the police and my role,” she said. “I feel this is a great approach to engage with the younger generations of our community and talk more about what they would like to see from me as their PCSO. I have had a positive response from most schools in the area and am looking to continue the meetings as often as possible.”
