John Dwyer , Cheshire Police and Crime Commissioner

Cheshire’s new Police and Crime Commissioner is to drop in to Nantwich police station on Beam Street tomorrow (March 27).

John Dwyer, a former Crewe & Nantwich Borough councillor, is visiting every station across the county to introduce himself.

He will chat to Insp Dave Smithers, head of Nantwich Neighbourhood Policing Unit, and other officers.

It’s aimed at familiarising the PCC with the challenges different areas of the force face on a daily basis.

On the same day, the Nantwich police “community bus” will be  in the town square as officers hold a public surgery.

Insp Smithers said members of his team will be available for residents to drop in and chat with from 10am to midday.

The “community bus” idea is designed to reach out more to people in different parts of the Nantwich force area.

“We want to increase our community engagement both in the town and rural areas, and the “bus” gives us a fixed presence,” said Insp Smithers.

“It’s like a mobile police station and often it encourages members of the public to raise issues that they otherwise wouldn’t think to call us about.

“Our Nantwich team covers over 130 square miles from Bickerton to Audlem and Wrenbury to Wybunbury. It’s important we have a visible presence in these areas.”
