General Order No 238 26th July 1900 Evidence Comment having been made at the Chester Assizes on 24th instant by the Lord Chief Justice in the case against John Parry for stabbing a horse, that the Constable had not given in evidence before the magistrates that horse hair was found on the knife by which it was alleged the wounds had been inflicted, and that for the first time such statement was made by the Constable in the case at the trial at Chester. The Lord Chief Justice also commented on the fact that the horse hair alleged to be on the knife was not preserved for production at the trial. The Chief Constable draws attention of the Constabulary to this important matter, and points out to Constables that they should be especially careful to state all they know upon the first occasion; For if they afterwards add to their evidence in any material point, it is naturally looked on with mistrust, and is open to suspicion either as to accuracy or veracity. In all cases the most minute details must be carefully noted by the Constable at the time, and given in evidence before the Magistrates, whether such should be in favour of the prisoner or not; and any articles or substance, however small, should be carefully preserved for production at the hearing of the case. Superintendents when examining Police witnesses before the Magistrates should see that important points such as the before mentioned, are clearly brought out, and entered on the dispositions.

General Order No 262 18th August 1900 Use of Telephones, Bicycles The Chief Constable has reason to believe that on receipt of information, by telephone or otherwise, of robberies of horses, cattle etc. there is a great want of energy and promptness in circulating information as directed in S.G.O. 247/1893 and latter portion of memo to Superintendents dated 24th November 1893, and takes this opportunity of again impressing upon all ranks the very great necessity of rapidity of action in dealing with such information in order to get ahead of the thief or thieves, which with the aid of the telephone, telegraph or bicycle should in many cases be accomplished. The Chief Constable also draws the attention of the Force to G.O. 158/1893 which directs that Constables of rural districts will be warned of any special cases appearing in the Police Gazette requiring attention, and if necessary, a note will be made in their Memo book of descriptions and circumstances, etc. Attention is also drawn to instructions on the back of Divisional Form D/28 duty scales, which directs that each Constable will take it for granted that persons wanted and property described on information which may reach them are in his district until he shall have made enquiry, and satisfied himself that neither is on his beat, cases have recently occurred where such has not been done. The Chief Constable hopes that after this warning there may not arise any laxness of duty of the ordinary precautions to spread information rapidly in such cases where prompt action may afford reasonable grounds for expecting the apprehension of persons wanted and of enquiries Constables neglecting to make searching enquiries on their beats on receipt of such information. The Chief Constable directs that this Order will be read on three successive Divisional parades.

Reports as to how Political meetings passed off to be sent to the Sergeant of the Section or Senior Constable through Superintendents, to the Chief Constable, immediately after the holding of such meetings, with any Remarks the Superintendent may consider necessary to make, so as to keep the Chief Constable thoroughly informed of the local feeling between Political parties. 2. Points requiring attention before Polling day. Before the day of the Election Superintendents will see that all heaps of stones and other things easily used as missiles are quietly removed from the vicinity of Polling Stations and other places where crowds are likely to assemble. 3. Superintendents will make special arrangements to concentrate their Divisions in case of necessity, as directed in Memo dated 7th April 1899. Any apprehended disturbance to be at once telephoned to the Chief Constable. 4.Arrangements will be made with the local Post Office Authorities at all places where Polling will take place to send telegrams without loss of time in case of riot, etc. etc.in the event of the Telephone being unavailable. 5. Superintendents will direct Constables to quietly warn all householders on their districts that the Police may be absent during the Polling day, and ask them not to leave their premises unprotected, as thieves and others may take advantage of the occasion. 6. The Chief Constable specially desires to impress upon all ranks of the Force, that they must abstain from expressing any Political opinion likely to, or do anything which might be construed as to influence the Electors in any way. 7. All the Sergeants and Constables, not detailed for duty in the several Divisions, will be ready to move on receipt of telegram or other messages directing them to do so. Posting of Notices. 8. Those members of the Constabulary who may receive Notices relative to the Election from the Acting Under Sheriff, or Deputy Returning Officers, will at once post same in rural districts: and in urban or suburban districts, arrange for such to be done without delay by billposters, care to be taken when giving the order, that only a reasonable charge is made. Accounts for billposting will be sent, through Superintendents to the Chief Constable within seven days after the Election for transmission to the proper quarter, and it will be understood that Constables will not be permitted to receive any sum from the Deputy Returning Officer or others for this work, except the bills for same have been forwarded through the Chief Constable as herein directed. 9. Nomination of Candidates. The time and place of nomination of Candidates will be notified from this office, and the Superintendents of the Division with one Sergeant and five Constables (or a lesser number if considered sufficient) will attend at such place (not in Boroughs) to maintain order etc. The Constables will be dismissed to their stations as soon as proceedings are over, and Superintendents will report to the Chief Constable by that "nights" post how the proceedings have passed off. 10. Polling Day. The times and places of polling in the Parliamentary Divisions where contest will take place will be notified from this office and Orders will be issued by the Chief Constable as to the number of Constables to be detailed for duty at Polling Stations, and in every case such Constables should parade at the Polling Station at which they have to perform duty at 7.45 a.m. 11. A supply of the "Card of Instruction" to Constables on duty at Polling Stations, dated 16th November 1885, will be forwarded from Head Quarters to Superintendents who will be responsible that a copy is handed to each Constable detailed for duty at Polling Stations, and that the same are collected from the Constables and forwarded to Head Quarters immediately after the Election. 12. In detailing Constables for duty at Polling Stations, Superintendents will, as far as possible, arrange for the Constables of the District to perform such duty, who should be relieved at certain periods of the day for reset and refreshments, but the Chief Constable considers it to be unnecessary where two or more Constables are on duty at Polling Stations in outlying districts, away from places where Reserves are assembled, for such Constables should be allowed to be relieved by other's, but, that one of the two Constables should be allowed to be off duty for the purpose of rest and refreshments, say from 9.30 to 11.30 a.m. and the other from 2 till 4 p.m. or at such times as it may be expected that they will be least required at the Polling Stations: these Constables should be dismissed to their Stations as soon as possible after the close of the Poll, if appearances, satisfy the Superintendent, or Senior Officer that their services can be safely dispensed with, but not earlier than two hours after the termination of the Poll. 13. Should the Presiding Officer so request, one or the Constables who have been on duty may accompany him with the Ballot Boxes to place of counting votes, and then he (the Constable) will report himself to the Superintendent for orders whether he must return to his Station, or not, and the Superintendent will, unless such Constable is required for the maintenance of order, direct him to return to his Station forthwith. 14. The necessary Forms of Declaration of Secrecy will be forwarded from this office to Superintendents and all Constables detailed for duty at Polling Stations will make the Declaration before a Magistrate the day prior to the Polling Day, and hand same to the Presiding Officer at the opening of the Poll. 15. Constables on duty at Polling Stations will remember that their post is outside such, or the purpose of keeping the entrance thereto clear of all obstructions, to prevent over- crowding, to regulate traffic, and generally to maintain order outside, so that voters may have ready access to the Polling Stations: should, however, the Presiding Officer request the Constables to enter the Polling Station for the purpose of performing any Police Duty, such as restoring order, ejecting unauthorised persons, receiving persons into custody for personation ( see card for instructions ) they will at once comply with the request, and after having performed , such duty, will return to their post outside. Superintendents and others in charge at places where there are Polling Stations will frequently visit such Stations to see that Constables are properly performing their duty, reporting any who are not. 16. Superintendents will detail a sufficient number of Constables, in plain clothes, where necessary, to mix in the crowd, so as to quietly obtain information of any intended attempt to create disturbance, or damage property, together with any other circumstances which may come under their observation, showing the feeling manifested by the people. These Constables will keep up a constant communication with the Officers in charge, to enable him to properly handle the strength of Police at his disposal. 17. Superintendents and others in charge will strongly impress upon all Constables that the utmost forbearance and good temper must be shown by them, as during the excitement of an Election, angry words and rough usage may be expected, should however, a breach of the peace be committed, or property be destroyed they must act with the greatest promptness and decision, in order to prevent such a dangerous example spreading, and in the event of persons being taken into custody no un necessary violence will be used in taking them to the Lockups. 18. Constables who perform duty at Polling Stations on their own districts will not be called upon to do night duty, except to see that all is quiet before retiring from duty. 19.

In such application, which will be sent through Superintendents, the Constable must state his registration number and description on the register of voters so that the Chief Constable may give a proper Certificate, as laid down in the Act. Upon receipt of General Orders, Superintendents will immediately "tell off" the Constables of their respective Divisions, and in any case where it is found absolutely necessary for Constables to be detailed for duty so that they are unable to vote at the Polling Station within their own Polling District, such Constables should be at once warned, in order to give them sufficient time to make the application above referred to, and receive the necessary Certificate from the Chief Constable to enable them to vote as above intimated. Superintendents in telling off their Constables must not detail them for duty outside their own Parliamentary Districts and be as careful as possible not to send Constables off their Polling Districts unless it be absolutely necessary for Police purposes on the date of Election. All Constables who are desirous of voting should record their votes as soon as possible after the Polling Stations are open, so as to be prepared for duty at any time during the day.

General Order No 378 16th December 1900 Printed Notice re Ladder Thieves CHIEF CONSTABLES OFFICE CHESHIRE CONSTABULARY CHESTER 6th DECEMBER 1900 LADDER ROBBERIES As several robberies of the above nature have recently been committed in certain parts of the County, the Chief Constable desires to draw attention to the Notice on this subject, issued by him in 1895. Although there is no cause for alarm it may be advisable that occupiers of country homes and suburban residences standing in their own grounds should be a reminded of the necessity of taking precautions to prevent the committal of similar depredations on their premises. CHESHIRE CONSTABULARY NOTICE CHIEF CONSTABLES OFFICE CHESTER, OCTOBER 6th OCTOBER 1805 1. As in the Months of February 1891 and 1892, the houses of Norton Priory, near Runcorn, and the Towers, Poynton, near Stockport, and early in March, 1893, The Rookery, Nantwich were respectively entered by a class of Burglars known as "Ladder Thieves" and a large quantity of valuable Jewellery stolen therefrom, the Chief Constable desires to draw the attention of occupiers of Country Houses and of Suburban Residences standing in their own grounds of robberies of this kind. These thieves either obtain information from persons connected with the establishment, or by previous minute inspection of the house, dressed in disguise, calling on some false pretence, make themselves acquainted with the doors, windows and general surroundings. Having gained this knowledge they, sometime after, suddenly make their raid generally after Eight o'clock in the evening, while the family is at dinner and the upstairs servants have finished their domestic duties. A ladder is obtained from the premises, or from a neighbouring farm or house; entrance doors, French windows and gates are wired up; wire entanglements are run across gardens paths and lawns adjoining the house. The ladder is then raised to the selected window (probably "spotted" at a previous visit) bedroom entered doors of room well secured on the inside then the room is ransacked for jewellery or valuables of any sort which can be easily carried off. A VERY SHORT TIME suffices for all this, as these men are experts at their trade, and generally have with them highly finished implements for their work. THE FOLLOWING PRECAUTIONS ARE RECOMMENDED:- 1. Jewellery and valuable ornaments etc. should be KEPT in a "safe" to heavy for removal down a ladder and the key in the possession of the owner or secreted in ANOTHER room or place. 2. All suspicious persons observed loitering about or directing attention to any house or grounds to be noted, and description at once to the Police. 3. Ladders should not be carelessly left about, but securely fastened by pad lock and chain to a brick wall or out house, and near neighbours who have ladders should be asked about the same. 4. A man-servant should patrol round the house occasionally, after the above hour:- or if an outdoor servant is not available, a servant directed to look around the upper floors, doors tried, and if one be found fastened up, an alarm should be at once given. The foregoing precautions should be specially attended when a party of guests are staying in the house, or the family is away from home. 5. Should a robbery be committed IMMEDIATE information should be sent to the Superintendent of police and the nearest Constable and to all Railway Stations in the vicinity, and if so doing so doing Police Stations are passed, give information as theses thieves loose no time in quitting the County. J. H. HAMERSLEY Chief Constable of Cheshire. N.B:- Although, no robbery of this kind has taken place in Cheshire since March 1893, there is no reason to believe that such will not occur again, or that "Ladder Thieves" have ceased to exist.

Lists of the names and addresses of individuals to whom the notices are delivered, and date of same, will be made, and forwarded to the Chief Constable on 31st December 1900.
