About the force
Cheshire Constabulary provides policing services to the county of Cheshire. The police force area covers 905 square miles and a coastline of approximately 67 miles in the north west of England.
Although there are some areas of marked affluence, Cheshire is generally poor.
Around one million people mainly live in the urban centres which include the city of Chester and the towns of Warrington, Crewe and Macclesfield. The resident population is increased by university students and the large numbers who visit, socialise, or travel through the county each year.
