Crime boss to visit town

Warrington Guardian: John Dwyer John Dwyer

SHARE your views with the Police and Crime Commisioner when he visits the town centre this month.

John Dwyer will be on a walkabout on Tuesday, January 22 when residents can give their views on policing in the area.

He said: "I am drawing up the police and crime plan which will shape the direction of policing in Cheshire.

“By meeting people face to face I can get a real impression of what is important to them and what they think about the objectives I am proposing for my first year in office and beyond.

“I am also deciding the police budget for the coming year.

That will affect how much council tax people pay for policing.

“I will welcome people’s views on the budget proposals and where savings could be made to meet the required reductions in funding.”

And the time for his "walkabout" ?
Probably between 9 and 5 when most law-abiding, police-supporting, tax paying individuals are in work.

My views


1) the role is ill-thought out and its creation merely a result of tory hatred of local democracy


2) The election was a farce and with such a low turnout that he has no democratic mandate. If I remember rightly, less than 5% of the electorate voted for him as their first choice candidate.


3) If he was the superb candidate he was put forward as being then people have to wonder why he needs to employ the ex-chair of the police authority to hold his hand.


4) To be at all relevant to the majority in the borough you need to go vack on your candidatee statement to focus on rural crime - not much sheep rustling goes on where I live.


5) Set meaurable goals, and if these are not met - resign.

He should make his first job to call in officers from his former employer, Cheshire Police, to arrest the entire council for flagrant misuse of local taxes!!

I didn't know he had the power to set council tax targets as well as police budgets, his power is growing, soon Cheshire will look like 1930's Germany with the PPC holding all the power.

Also,

does he know where Warrington is? or will he class Stockton Heath as his offical state to the town like he did during his election campaign?
