ADVICE FROM CHESHIRE POLICE

Cheshire police urge you not to risk bringing any illegal or unknown substances to the event. If you are found to be in possession of controlled drugs, new psychoactive substances or weapons, you are liable to prosecution.

The possession of any amount of a controlled drug is a criminal offence and the supply of a controlled drug is an even more serious offence. Carrying controlled substances for others, such as a group of friends, is still considered as possession with intent to supply and will lead to prosecution and a likely prison sentence. We have countless examples of this happening, and it ruins people’s lives.

No illegal drug-taking can be assumed to be safe, and there is no safe way to take them.

Think before entering the festival – don’t bring any prohibited or illegal items with you, and use the surrender (amnesty) bins provided to dispose of any controlled drugs, new psychoactive substances or weapons.

 

For any policing issues that arise directly from the event please report online at www.cheshire.police.uk or call 101 (the police non-emergency number) and inform the operator that it is a Creamfields related issue.

In an emergency or if a crime is taking place always dial 999.

Anyone with any information about crime can also call Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.

Police across the country have been working with UK festival organisers to ensure events remains safe and secure

This year, we’re pleased to say that Project Servator at Cheshire Constabulary is supporting cinch presents Creamfields. A policing tactic which aims to disrupt a range of criminal activity, including terrorism, Project Servator will be operating before and during the event.

Specialist uniformed and plain clothed officers are trained to spot tell-tale signs that someone is planning or preparing to commit a crime. They will be carrying out highly visible and unpredictable deployments that can turn up anywhere at any time before and throughout the event.  They will be supported by a range of police assets, including police dogs, as well as private security staff and CCTV operators.

In the run-up to the festival, officers have been engaging with businesses, partners and local residents to develop a network of vigilance and encourage people to report anything that doesn’t feel right.

At Creamfields, police have been working closely with us to remind us all how important it is to report anything that doesn’t feel right.  They are also encouraging the community to get on board by speaking with and handing out leaflets to people in the area, encouraging them to report anything that doesn’t look or feel right.

As festival-goers, you can also help to keep everyone safe by remaining vigilant and reporting suspicious activity. Trust your instincts and tell police or security on site immediately if you spot something suspicious.

In an emergency, always dial 999. Don’t leave it to someone else to report it.
