Widescale interest in Sheringham Home Watch schemes

Sheringham residents could see 10 new Home Watch schemes set up in the town after two successful information events held by the town's Safer Neighbourhood Team last week.

PC Ian Smith and PCSO Rebekah Best explained the project to residents and discussed how members of the public could set-up their own neighbourhood scheme. They will continue to support the schemes.

Anyone interested in setting up or joining a Home Watch scheme in the Sheringham area should contact the Safer Neighbourhood Team on sntsheringham@norfolk.pnn.police.uk or call them on the new non-emergency number 101.

PCSO Best will be holding a crime prevention event this Thursday, March 1, at St Andrew's Methodist Church, Sheringham, from 11am to 2pm.

Information will be available on a range of topics from securing a heating oil tank to preventing scrap metal theft.

Officers will be joined by trading standards staff who will be able to offer advice on how to stay alert to scams and how not to fall victim to rogue traders or bogus officials.
