We invited two Police Community Support Officers (PCSO) to Marx Court to deliver a home safety and personal safety talk to our customers there!
We carried out a leaflet drop and poster campaign at Marx Court to encourage customers to come along. We had a good turn out with 12 customers coming along to get advice from the PCSO's!
The PCSO's are part of the Safer Neighbourhood Team which cover the Stonebroom, Pilsley, Shirland, and Morton area. The talks covered personal safety, home safety, and scam awareness which the customers thought was very valuable information.
One of the residents said, "I have been a victim of a scam before so this is a lot of relevant information we have been given today. It has been really interesting. I've learnt to be more careful of who I speak to at the door and what I tell them and to shred letters with personal details on."
