CHESHIRE POLICE AND CRIME COMMISSIONER CALL FOR CONTINUED RESPECT AND TOLERANCE

Posted on Tuesday 28th June

Police & Crime Commissioner David Keane has called for continued respect and tolerance to be shown across Cheshire following the EU referendum.

He said: “The last week has seen some shameful behaviour by individuals focused on division and intolerance. I am pleased to say that I am not aware of any such incidents in Cheshire.

“I believe that in Cheshire we have an ethos built upon mutual respect and a police service that treats all our communities equally.

“The Constabulary has been clear – hate crime will not be tolerated and firm action will be taken to tackle it. I fully support them in this and would urge anyone who has been a victim of hate crime to contact the police - you will be treated seriously.”
