Close it, Lock it, Check it.

As Chair of the local District Policing Partnership I was delighted to take part in the launch of a new domestic burglary initiative.

This involved the help of the local Bloomfield’s shopping Centre by using their trolleys. Attached to every shallow trolley was a specially designed panel, with the message ‘Motorists have you locked your Car’.

Every year the DPP undertakes work with the local community and domestic burglary is consistently highlighted as a concern. It is something which the DPP are committed to proactively tackling with the local police and as a result we sought to identify new methods of getting the message across to local residents. Hopefully our campaign will help prevent people becoming a victim of crime, whether it is in the home or from your car.
