Abstract: THE COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT EFFORTS OF THE CHESHIRE, ENGLAND, POLICE ARE REVIEWED. THE POLICE IN THE COMMUNITY SECTION ACTS AS A CLEARING HOUSE FOR INDIVIDUAL POLICE EFFORTS IN BEHALF OF SCOUT GROUPS, HANDICAPPED CHILDREN'S GROUPS, YOUTH CLUBS, AND SIMILAR COMMUNITY ORGANIZATIONS. IT ALSO PROVIDES SPEAKERS FOR SCHOOLS AND CLUBS, HELPS WITH VARIOUS CHARITABLE CAUSES, AND ACTIVELY INVOLVES ITSELF WITH CLUBS FOR YOUTHS WHO NEED EXTRA SUPERVISION AND GUIDANCE. A NUMBER OF SERVICES ARE PROVIDED TO SENIOR CITIZENS INCLUDING DRIVING, VISITING OLD PEOPLE'S HOMES, AND OPERATING AN EARLY WARNING SYSTEM DURING WINTER MONTHS. THE JUVENILE LIAISON DEPARTMENT AND THE JUVENILE AFTER-CARE SCHEME ARE OFFICIAL, COURT-RELATED PROJECTS. THE LIAISON DEPARTMENT VISITS HOMES OF JUVENILES WHO HAVE BEEN APPREHENDED, COLLECTS DATA, AND COOPERATES WITH THE SOCIAL SERVICES DEPARTMENT. IT IS DEDICATED TO THE PREVENTION OF FURTHER DELINQUENCY BY INTERCEPTION AND DIVERSION AT AN EARLY AGE. TO DO THIS IT WORKS CLOSELY WITH SCHOOLS, PARENT/TEACHER ASSOCIATIONS, AND COMMUNITY ORGANIZATIONS. THE AFTERCARE SCHEME WAS DEVISED FOR JUVENILES WHOSE FAMILY COULD NOT OR WOULD NOT ADEQUATELY DEAL WITH PROBLEM BEHAVIOR. THE CHIEF CONSTABLE, SUPPORTED BY A JUVENILE AFTERCARE COMMITTEE, CAN CALL ON A WIDE RANGE OF COMMUNITY ORGANIZATIONS, THE SOCIALS SERVICE, THE PROBATION DEPARTMENT, AND VOLUNTEERS TO HELP YOUNG OFFENDERS WHO NEED GUIDANCE. THE COURSES FOR SENIOR OVERSEAS POLICE OFFICERS CONDUCTED BY THE CREWE FORCE TRAINING CENTER ARE ALSO BRIEFLY DESCRIBED. (GLR)
