Speeding Cars in Warrington Road have recently been the target of local policing to reduce speed and increase safety: this is to continue and you may well see more targeting and speeding cars will face fixed penalties.
Bogus callers are again in the area - please use the STOP...CHAIN...CHECK...
STOP: ARE YOU EXPECTING ANYONE?
CHAIN: SECURE THE DOOR BEFORE OPENING
CHECK: ALWAYS CHECK ID - IT COULD BE FAKE !!!
Need to report an incident?? RING 0151 709 6010 and ask for ST HELENS. Give your information and ask for an incident number. Don't always expect someone else to report an incident.
The police look at statistics - the more cases reported about a similar type of incident or crime, the higher it goes on their priority list to target. As you will be aware, their money to tackle crime is not limitless so they need the process of targeting the most prevalent crimes.
