Flyers help prevent crime in Altrincham
June 23, 2010 by Gareth
Companies offering flyer printing in Altrincham could help in the fight against crime by getting involved with Trafford Police’s scheme to tackle crime in the Trafford area with their Crime Prevention Panel.
Trafford Police’s Crime Prevention Panel recently celebrated its 18th birthday and on the back of this, the police are looking for further volunteers in the area to help them with reducing crime.
The panel is responsible for running many successful projects, such as a Fixlox campaign where panel members go to the homes of the most vulnerable in the community and supply them with security products and fit them at no cost.
Panel members also distribute flyers with details regarding crime prevention at local community events and man market stalls in the Altrincham and Urmston areas regularly in order to educated people about crime prevention. Face to face discussions are a great way to engage people with this subject but ‘leave behinds’ such as flyers ensure that people have a reminder of the measures to take when protecting their home and possessions from criminals.
Trafford Police are now looking for further volunteers in order to bring fresh ideas and opinions into the panel from a wide selection of the community in order to make the schemes as effective as possible for the local area. These kinds of prevention projects are proven to reduce crime so volunteers would make a real difference to the community that they live in and can be very fulfilling for the volunteer.
