Crime Reduction Opportunity – Smartwater
There is currently a grant available from Police & Crime Commissioner West Mercia which your Parish Council is considering applying for. The grant, with financial assistance from the Parish Council, provides smartwater kits to home owners enabling them to “security mark” their property in such a way that it deters burglars from stealing it. Signage is provided by the Police which marks the village as protected in this way and has proven to be very effective.
Other local town and parish councils have bought in to the scheme. Are you interested? Please let us know by messaging the Clerk or your local councillors – contact details can be found on our website.
