Policing in Widnes

On Friday evening, I went out on patrol with members of the Neighbourhood Policing Unit (NPU) in Widnes. I was able to see for myself the challenges faced on the front line, especially with anti-social behaviour, licensed premises, and cross border crime; a particular issue in Halton.

The NPU’s commitment and professionalism was extremely impressive and how their handled some difficult situations emphasised how tough their job can be; and what a great job they do on our behalf. I am very grateful for the officers’ time on Friday and look forward to joining them again for further patrols.
