Bakewell residents sharpen up on crime prevention

Posted on 9th September 2013

Residents at Hoyle Court will receive a coffee morning with a difference as they sharpen up on crime prevention knowledge.

Following residents concerns about anti-social behaviour and criminal activity in the area, police will be paying a visit to offer crime prevention advice and information packs.

PCSO Hayley Grundy, from Bakewell Safer Neighbourhood Team, will be visiting Hoyle Court, Bakewell, on Wednesday, September 11 to speak to the residents about how they can protect themselves against crime.

Simple steps around personal security can be taken, such as ensuring handbags and belongings are kept an eye on when out and about, buying a purse chain, which clips your purse to a handbag and ensuring that windows and doors are locked when leaving your property.

 PCSO Hayley Grundy, said: “Bakewell is a safe place to live but we want to make sure people are aware of what they can do to further protect themselves against crime.

“Simple steps, which can be reassuring, will help to make all the difference in feeling safe and secure within our communities and avoid becoming a victim.”
