A message from Councillor Patrick Myers

Police and Trafford Council Officers join forces
In the summer months Anti Social Behaviour tends to increase in and around Halecroft Park. Trafford Council Officers are working with the Police in a proactive way to reduce the threat to the community, particularly where alcohol and illegal drugs are involved. Greater Manchester Police have
pre-emptively targeted more than 30 individuals who are predisposed towards Anti Social Behaviour in the area.

In the three months to end June compared to the same quarter last year, burglaries are down by 42%. Car crime remains a priority for the police in the area. You can reduce your risk by ensuring that you do not leave articles on show in your car, even when it is parked on your property. Take care to keep the keys out of sight, particularly at night when homes are broken into for the car keys. If you have any information concerning Anti Social Behaviour or car crime in Hale, you can discuss the issues in confidence with any of your Ward Councillors or alternatively report issues anonymously to Crime-stoppers on 0800 555111

Trafford Council has launched a new, free application for the iPhone to make it easier and more convenient for residents to access Council services and information wherever they are. The free application is available to download in the usual way from the Apple store.

The iPhone application is part of Trafford Council’s commitment to develop new and innovative ways of engaging with residents by offering a service that makes it easier to get in touch and get information about key Council services at a time, and in a way, that is most convenient and useful for them.  Users can also give direct feedback on the application, its features and how the Council can continue to provide efficient, first-class ways to get in touch and find information, via the 'Rate this App' function within the application.
