For Residents

Crime Prevention

Chorltonville experiences no more crime than any other area in South Manchester and a lot less than many. Needless to say when it happens it is very upsetting for those concerned. The best way to protect yourself and your property is to belong to a Home Watch scheme and take and act upon the advice given by the police and the Home Watch coordinator.

There are already nine schemes in Chorltonville but there are still a large number of houses not covered. The present schemes cover: two parts of Claude Road, The Meade, Brookburn Road, South Meade, Southgate, Meadow Bank and two sections of South Drive. If you don’t belong to a scheme and would like to start one or join one you can get information from Shirley Quinn, chair of the Home Watch Network, at sjquinn3443@gmail.com, the local PCSO Emily Kenyon at  emily.kenyon@gmp.police.uk and Helen Hughes at Elizabeth Slinger Road Police Station at helen.hughes@gmp.police.uk. One of Helen's jobs is keeping in touch with the Home Watch coordinators.

If you need to contact the police:

  • 999 for a crime that is actually happening now;
  • 101 to report a crime that is no longer an emergency.

If you have suspicions or information either ring Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 or contact our local neighbourhood PC Jonathon Wilkinson at jonathon.wilkinson@gmp.pnn.police.uk
