Taking the fight to criminals

Evesham Editorial 1st Sep, 2019   0

MORE than 10,000 We Don’t Buy Crime property marking kits have been provided to communities across Herefordshire, Worcestershire and Shropshire since the start of 2019.

Earlier this year the scheme received a further boost with additional funding from West Mercia Police and Crime Commissioner John Campion.

Chief Supt Tom Harding, who has led the scheme since it began in 2015, said: “The area covered by West Mercia Police is some of the safest in the country.

“However, one thing I have always been conscious of is the affect crimes such as burglary and theft have on victims of crime.

“Taking steps to prevent burglary and thefts in the first place is really important and I’m delighted that since the start of the year so many kits have been provided to our local communities to help protect them from thieves.”
