Residents will be advised on how to protect their homes and belongings from crooks during a special crime prevention workshop in Fordham this week.
The event is part of a police day of action on Wednesday (February 21) across Cambridgeshire.
It’s Cambridgeshire Constabulary’s biggest ever crime prevention event, involving 40 police officers, 80 PCSOs and 12 special constables as well as crime prevention officers and cadets.
People will be encouraged to take simple steps to make their houses and cars more secure, as well as being given the chance to buy security products, such as alarms and simulators, at cost price.
The Fordham workshop will include a presentation and question and answer session with Detective Chief Superintendent Chris Mead at 7.30pm.
Protecting your home and business from criminals is “easier and cheaper” than you may think, and reduce your chances of being a victim of crime, Superintendent James Sutherland said.
“We want to make life as difficult as possible for criminals and need the public’s help in achieving this. While we will work tirelessly to attack criminality it is vital that we use every opportunity we can from preventing it happening in the first place.”
Police and Crime Commissioner Jason Ablewhite said: “There are so many simple things we can all do to stop ourselves becoming a victim of crime and this day of action is the ideal opportunity for people and businesses to take positive steps to protect themselves.”
The Fordham crime prevention workshop will take place from 5pm to 10pm, at Victoria Hall, Carter Street, CB7 5NG.
