Crime Prevention and Safety Advice on the Internet

We are quite often asked "where can I find crime prevention advice myself and how can I ensure that a trader is reliable". For those of you wishing to source your own information and have access to the internet, listed below are a few web links for crime prevention advice.

Police (non-emergency) - dial 101



And a reliable trader?

Where possible have a word with family and friends to choose a trader by personal recommendation. Avoid contracting a door to door trader, you just don't know what you will get.


Despite any sense of urgency from the trader or offer of a seemingly fabulous deal simply say "Leave me your details, I will speak to my family and get back to you if I want your services" if that special offer won't wait then it's not really a special offer!


In an emergency or witnessing a crime being committed, dial 999.
