Crime Prevention Day at the Cop Shop.

CRIME prevention advice has been handed out to residents at a special drop-in event held at the town’s new Community Cop Shop.

The event, which was held at the shop, in Quay Road, proved popular with visitors who had the chance to have their bikes and tools security coded, as well as being able to ask questions about crime prevention.

The event was organised by local PCSO Bev Feirn and Humberside Police crime reduction officer Tracy Rokahr.

PCSO Feirn said there was a great attendance and during the day they carried out around five bike codings, gave out advice and reassurance on anti-social behaviour, and how residents can protect their homes correctly. They also provided shed alarms and markers for people’s personal belongings.

And the event proved so popular they are now looking at holding one every second Monday in the month, with the next due to be held on Monday, October 8.

Personal alarms, shed alarms, bells and pens for marking of belongings are all on sale at the cop shop, while staff are also on hand to give out crime prevention advice.
