On Monday 6 November, Allcooper was delighted to welcome along Gloucestershire Constabulary to our head office in Kingsholm, Gloucester.
The Constabulary's well-know 'CEV' (Community Engagement Vehicle) was in attendance throughout the morning, providing crime prevention advice and neighbourhood support to members of the local community.
Police Community Support Officers were also handing out free check lists and timer switches as part of the #StolenMemories anti-burglary campaign. Now that the clocks have gone back, burglary rates are known to rise significantly due to many more homes appearing unoccupied. Timer switches attached to lamps, televisions and radios can help give the impression someone is home.
There was also the opportunity to sign up to the Constabulary's free community alerts service. This is a great way to keep up-to-date with any crime incidents reported in your area, with updates sent directly to you via email. You can sign up to receive these online using the link below.
