Doorstep Crime

 

Some criminals won’t go to the trouble of breaking into your home if they can just knock and be invited in. They either distract the resident while they steal items or trick the person into paying too much for a simple job.

Doorstep crime can happen to anyone. However, a victim of this sort of crime is most frequently:

  • An elderly person
  • Female
  • Living alone
  • Targeted after bereavement
 

No Cold Calling zones

This is a designated zone where people cannot cold call - or call without an appointment - for any reason. It sends out a clear message to criminals that their actions will not be tolerated. To discuss the possibility of setting up a No Cold Calling zone, contact your local policing team.
