Hull: Police and partners agencies set to deliver crime prevention to residents

15 Aug 2016

The Community Policing Team and partners are holding a burglary crime prevention initiative on Biggin Avenue and Yeadon Garth, Hull to assist in reducing shed and garage burglaries in the area.

On Wednesday 7 September between 10am and 4pm the local Community Policing Team, Community Safety Volunteers and representatives from Hull City Council, Humberside Fire and Rescue Service, Riverside Housing, Urban Community group and the Neighbourhood Network will be visiting all the properties along the roads.

During the visits they will be conducting a home security survey with the occupant, fitting free outbuilding alarms and encouraging greater emphasis on preventing crime on their street.

Residents visited will be offered:
• Practical advice on preventing their homes being targeted by burglars.
• A FREE alarm for their garage/shed with accompanying deterrent signage, which will be fitted as part of the visit.
• Support in registering for a free account and assistance with uploading of valuables onto the site.
• Plus other target hardening equipment for home owners to deter criminality at their address.

This event is part of an ambitious year-long crime prevention initiative aiming to make 2,500 homes safer in the Garths area of Hull.
