Long Eaton Safer Neighbourhood Team is supporting a fraud awareness event being held tomorrow, Friday, March 17 at Royal Bank of Scotland on the Market Place. The event will run from 9.15am onwards with police officers being in the bank from 1pm to 4.15pm. 

Sgt Damien Shannon, who is in charge of the team, said: ”The force is doing a lot of work to raise awareness of fraud and in particular, that committed on-line, so we are really happy to get involved with Royal Bank of Scotland and support this event.”

The aim of holding this event is to use this know-how, with the help of Derbyshire police, to equip our customers and visitors to the branch with the knowledge to protect themselves.”
