The local Police Beat team (Valley) try to be proactive in reducing crime and they get involved with local communities by attending Parish Council meetings and visiting various locations in their Beat Bus to talk to residents and hear their concerns. You can read their reports of crime in and around Coleorton on the Parish Council meetings pages.

But "Prevention is better than cure" as they say.

Safer NWLDC Partnership is working with the local police and councils to encourage residents to take measures themselves to prevent crime happening.

Crime Prevention Items

As part of this campaign they are making some fairly simple items available, free of charge, to Coleorton residents. These include:

  • Personal alarm with a 130dbs siren activated on a keyring and includes an LED torch.
  • Car Key Wallets: these key protectors aim to prevent vehicle thefts following a rise in the number of thefts of keyless cars in recent months. The car key protectors prevent criminals from using a device to bounce a signal from the key to the vehicle in order to gain entry and steal it.
  • Window Shock Alarm. Fitted to window or patio doors emits 110dBs siren if the window is shaken due to entry attempt.
  • Two-in-one permanent UV/Ink marker pen and also immoveable stickers to mark your valuables. Valuables can be registered with www.immobilise.com to enable them to be traced if stolen or lost.
  • Shed or van motion detector PIR with security light - and weather-proof "This Shed is Alarmed!" notices.
  • Fence spikes
  • Simple but effective - small bells to attach to handbag, phone, purse etc which jingle if moved.
  • Other items will be available later.

These items are available TO COLEORTON RESIDENTS ONLY by contacting our:

Crime prevention is working well in Coleorton

Colin Jones, reports that local residents are taking a big interest in the free-of-charge items and advice available. The car key wallets have proved to be very popular and successful so more are on order. The car key protectors prevent criminals from using a device to bounce a signal from the key to the vehicle in order to gain entry and steal it.

One lady parishioner who had a recent break-in took 7 of the fence spikes and some other devices including a shed alarm along with the bright yellow warning sign. Another resident was delighted with the car key wallet as he was worried about his car that he has to leave parked on the drive.
