Free security marking for Inkersall allotment holders

Posted on 14th May 2015

Allotments holders in Inkersall are invited to attend a free security marking event, hosted by their local Safer Neighbourhood team.

Officers from the Staveley Safer Neighbourhood Team are set to host the event in a bid to deter criminals and boost security following recent shed breaks in the area.

The policing team will be visiting the Inkersall Allotment site from 10am on Saturday, May 30 to mark-up tools and valuables with free SmartWater kits.

SmartWater is a forensic based security marking fluid that can be used on property from bikes, electrical items and jewellery to help deter criminals.

Marking items with security kits such as SmartWater can improve the chances of police returning any items if they are stolen and recovered.

PCSO Anna Kelsey from the Staveley Safer Neighbourhood Team said: "We will be marking up garden tools and other valuables to help to further protect resident's property from being targeted by thieves.

"We will be at the site throughout the morning to offer crime prevention advice and will be able to answer any questions that visitors may have. I am looking forward to seeing you there."

To find out more about the event call your local Safer Neighbourhood team on 101, the non-emergency number for Derbyshire police.
