Police roadshow to help fight crime this Christmas

A YULETIDE crime prevention roadshow that is touring North Yorkshire is due to arrive in Northallerton this week thanks to police volunteers.

The Keeping Safe at Christmas community roadshow will land at Northallerton Library on December 1 between 10am and 2pm.

Focusing on online safety, personal safety and protecting home and property, volunteers will be on hand to provide seasonal crime prevention advice and raise awareness of online crime.

They will also promote the North Yorkshire Community Messaging system that allows members of the public to receive alerts about crime and incidents in their areas.

Team leader Antony Baldwin said: “The Christmas period is traditionally the busiest time of the year for shopping and unfortunately, there are those who exploit this period for the wrong reasons, but it only takes a few simple preventative measures to discourage criminals and stay safe.

“By going into the heart of our communities, we can take advice direct to members of the public. We urge everyone to come and chat.”
