WEST MERCIA POLICE GIVE ADVICE ON PREVENTING CRIME
Residents from a market town were able to get advice on home security and how to securely mark tools for quine equipment at a rural action day.
Police together with a raft of external agencies and partners, staged the day at the Civic Centre in Whitchurch.
There are representatives from a number of groups at the event, including the RSPCA, local police officers and members of the Safer Roads Partnership.
As well as offering practical advice about home security, the police showed marking tools for equine equipment and gave advice about the use of SmartWater®
SmartWater, which is made in Telford, is a forensic tool that marks objects with a traceable liquid that carries a unique code to a specific address.
Once applied it is impossible to remove and can only be seen under ultraviolet light.
The day ran from 10am until 2pm and was free.
Constable Deborah Wheeler, of West Mercia Police’s North Shropshire Safer Neighbourhood Team said: “It was great seeing so many families and residents of Whitchurch and surrounding area, who found out more information on road safety, home security and rural issues at the rural action day.
“Thank you to SmartWater for making the event a great success.”
