If you need to contact the police in an emergency dial 999.
For non-emergencies (i.e. situations that do not require an immediate police response) use the number 101.
There are now three Neighbourhood Watch groups in the villages as far as we are aware. Lower Blackburn Road had one set up some years ago and new groups now cover upper Blackburn Road and Ryecroft and Ryefield.
Neighbourhood Wardens have the task of patrolling the Borough to deter crime, anti-social behaviour, public nuisance and help sort out environmental problems like fly tipping, littering and dog fouling. See the Chorley Borough Council website for details http://www.chorley.gov.uk
