PLEASE NOTE: This message is for an event located in Northamptonshire. I thought I'd post as it contains some very useful information.

On Wednesday 26 February from 13:00 – 16:30 Northamptonshire Police, Trading Standards and Neighbourhood Watch will be relaunching the Doorstep crime Action Network (DAN) to help prevent distraction burglary and rogue trading offences. The event is specifically aimed at service providers, organisations, carers, friends and family who support the older community within Northamptonshire. The Doorstep crime Action Network is about bringing together members of the public, private, charity, and community sector organisations to pass on simple crime prevention messages and help to prevent those vulnerable.

We will also be providing advice and guidance on recognising and preventing a number of different Scams and Fraud and are pleased to welcome guest speaker Marilyn Baldwin founder of TH!NK JESSiCA.

The event will take place at the Hilton Hotel, Water Lane, Collingtree, Northampton, NN4 0XW from 13:00 – 16:30. 

If you would like to attend, please contact the police Crime Prevention team on crimeprevention@northants.pnn.police.uk

Preventing distraction burglary:
• Display a ‘No Cold Calling Home’ sticker – available via susan.fletcher@northants.pnn.police.uk
• Not expecting visitors? There is no need to open the door to callers – its ok and not rude to send someone away
• Set up passwords with utility companies
• Keep the outside of your property well maintained
• Don’t keep large amounts of cash at home
• If you’re worried or suspect that doorstep rogue traders or distraction burglars are operating in your community or targeting someone you know, please call 0345 23 07 702 or 101
• If a crime is in progress, call 999
• Pass these messages on to help others within the community
