We appreciate our articles would usually give readers information on what your local community police team had been up to over the last few weeks, such as meetings with local partners and road traffic operations being held. Currently we are limited with social contact and therefore we wanted to take this chance to talk about some of our media campaigns.

Cheshire police are opening the door on unhealthy relationships. Are you, or someone you know, in a relationship that doesn’t feel quite right? Is one person in the relationship controlling, manipulative, abusive or violent? If so this is an unhealthy relationship and is defined as domestic abuse. In our current situation it is vital that victims of domestic abuse know how and where to access support. Our message is simple – you are not alone. Cheshire Police are holding online domestic abuse surgeries, which provide a safe and secure outlet for people to get in touch with us and support services to get vital advice about how to stay safe. You can find more information on these surgeries on the Cheshire Police Facebook or Twitter pages.

Monk committed the first offence in Rode Heath armed with a crowbar before continuing to the Post Office on Main Road in Goostrey where he threatened the shopkeepers before stealing a large quantity of cash. Detective Constable Kevin Lloyd who oversaw the investigation stated he was delighted that Monk had received a further eight year custodial sentence to add to the five years he was already serving.
