Cheshire Constabulary is helping communities prepare for the cold weather as part of a national ‘Get Ready for Winter′ campaign.
On 29 and 30 November, Police Community Support Officers were out and about in the community, visiting the elderly and most vulnerable members of the community to offer advice and support.
A police spokesperson said: "As autumn comes to an end and we officially move into winter, it is important that people are well prepared for the months ahead.
"Cheshire Constabulary is working in partnership with Cheshire Fire & Rescue, The Met Office and Local Authorities to get key messages and support out into the local communities of Cheshire."
The messages include home safety and security, vehicle advice, property marking, personal safety, watch schemes, winter warmth advice and details of support services available through the voluntary sector.
