Police presence increased ahead of Chester Racecourse fixtures

Chester will see an increased police presence this week as thousands of visitors descend upon the city for the Boodles May Festival fixtures.

Officers are working in partnership with Chester Racecourse and providing passive drugs dogs to be deployed.

This aim is to combat any criminality to ensure the safety of members of the public and racegoers in Chester, and improve the experience for all.

A dispersal order will be in place from 10am today until 4am on Friday; and 10am on Friday until 10am on Sunday. The dispersal order will allow officers to ban anyone from the city for up to 48 hours to prevent disorder.

The area covered by the order is highlighted in the map pictured below.

Inspector James Wilson said: “The races are expected to bring thousands of visitors to the city this week and we hope everyone enjoys their time here.

“With this in mind, we are grateful to our partners at Chester Racecourse in providing drugs dogs which will be deployed in the city to help keep people safe.

“There will also be an increased police presence in the area, as well as the dispersal orders in place. These orders are an additional tactical option that allow us to directly combat anti-social behaviour head on.

“I would urge residents and businesses to continue to report any issues with anti-social behaviour.”

Anyone with information about anti-social behaviour is urged to contact Cheshire Police on 101.
