Free crime prevention gear up for grabs at Melbourne community safety roadshow

Posted on 16th April 2013

Police will be security etching bicycles, helping drivers fit safety screws to their number plates and giving out free kit at a community roadshow in Melbourne. 

People living in the town will also be able to chat about neighbourhood policing issues with their local officers during the events, due to take place on Thursday, April 18.

Officers from Melbourne Safer Neighbourhood Team will be giving out crime prevention kit such as dusk til dawn light bulbs to help people boost security at their homes. 

They will also be offering a free security marking service for bikes, where cyclists can register their bikes and have a unique code etched onto it, as well as fitting security screws to car number plates to make it harder for thieves to steal them. 

The community safety roadshow will also be attended by staff from organisations including South Derbyshire District Council, Victim Support and Neighbourhood Watch volunteers. 

It takes place from 2pm to 7pm and will be held at Melbourne Assembly Rooms, in High Street. 

For more information, call the Safer South Derbyshire Community Safety Partnership on 01283 595858.
