From 21st February 2018 and during the following 2 to 3 weeks directories will be delivered to Post Code areas in South and East Sefton. If you are planning to be away during the delivery period, it may be advisable to ask a neighbour to collect the directory from your property for safe keeping until you return. This will avoid giving an indication that the house is unoccupied.

News from your Community Policing Team. A message from Inspector Ian Jones


This week’s good work has unfortunately been overshadowed by 2 Firearms discharges which resulted in injury. One in Akenside area and the other on the Pendle Estate. My team are doing their utmost to re-assure the public in the communities whilst our investigation team are leaving no stone unturned to find those responsible. I ask that if anyone has ANY information about these incidents and/or any other crime then please let us know. We need you to ‘help us to help you’!

Some brilliant work this week has included 3 males being arrested after breaking into a house targeting a cannabis farm in Bootle. All 3 were arrested and the cannabis recovered. A large cannabis farm recovered in ‘The Serpentine’, a number of weapons recovered from a park in Bootle and most pleasingly our burglaries have dramatically reduced. I believe this is down to the hard work of my team aided by the assistance by our communities.

Please keep up the great work and hopefully we can have more good news next week.’
