Policing in Disley and Newtown
Disley and Newtown is fortunate to have been allocated a Police Community Support Officer (PCSO). PCSOs are employed, directed and managed by Cheshire Constabulary and work to complement and support regular police officers. They provide a visible and accessible uniformed presence to improve the quality of life in the community and offer greater public reassurance. Disley’s PCSO covers the entire Parish and works closely with Disley Parish Council to address anti-social behaviour, the fear of crime, environmental issues and other factors which affect the quality of life of Disley and Newtown residents and visitors. PCSO powers include:
- Issuing of fixed penalty notices (e.g. riding on footpath; dog fouling; litter)
- Power to confiscate alcohol and tobacco
- Power to demand the name and address of a person acting in an anti-social manner
- Power of entry to save life or prevent damage
- Removal of abandoned vehicles
