From seeing the work of neighbourhood officers, to those who deal with 999 calls, crime scene investigators, drug teams and burglary unit, we reported on all the work that goes on.
And we held a webchat with the head of police in Warrington, Ch Sup Gary Finchett.

How many of the NINE Town Centre licensed premises found serving alcohol to under age or over intoxicated drinkers have been prosecuted? Given the Governments apparent strong stance on these offences, I wonder what Cheshire Police's position is, or is the

Individuals who are found to be serving alcohol to those underage or to those who are drunk can be prosecuted. Bar staff who were involved in the recent test purchases in Warrington town centre have been prosecuted. All 7 have been interviewed by police and Trading Standards. Five were given £80 fixed penalty notices for serving alcohol to underage drinkers and two have been summonsed for serving alcohol to underage drinkers. All those given fixed penalty notices fully admitted the offence. In addition to this we have also carried out another operation targeting the serving of alcohol to drunks in the town centre. As a result of that 3 bar staff were interviewed and issued with £80 fixed penalty notices for serving alcohol to drunks. All the premises that failed these test purchases have/will be retested at some point. To date 4 of these licensed premises have been retested and passed. Licensing officials are regularly carrying out visits to premises across the town to ensure they are adhering to the conditions of their licence. Test purchases are part of that process. If a premises fails a test purchase on three occasions in three months then the premises itself can be taken to a review hearing where potentially the licence could be revoked or suspended. Police and partners in Warrington are committed to tackling alcohol related crime and disorder. We will continue to crackdown on those premises who believe they can flout the law – whilst working to support those who are working hard with us to raise standards within the town.
