Help to prevent crime in Rubery
10:00am Thursday 24th October 2013 in Local
FOLLOWING a number of burglaries across the north of Worcestershire, West Mercia Police Force is organising a crime prevention advice surgery at Rubery Library.
The surgery is taking place on Thursday, October 31 at the New Road library from 10am to noon and Peter Aston, a West Mercia crime prevention design advisor will be on hand to give advice on crime prevention, as well as handing out leaflets, and providing ultra-violet pens for people to mark their property with.
People can use the pens, which are invisible to the naked eye, to write their postcode on items of value around their home, so that if they are stolen and recovered by police, they will be able to return them to their original owners.
The drop-in session is part of an initiative by West Mercia to tackle crime, catch burglars, and prevent offences by promoting crime prevention advice.
Mr Aston will also be booking appointments to visit people’s houses, and give individual advice on how to make them more secure.
