Crime Prevention Event

Residents are being invited to a crime prevention event at the Police Information Point (PIP) in Burnham library this week.

The event, which aims to provide an array of crime prevention advice to help reduce the chances of people falling victims of crime, will take place between 2pm and 4pm on Friday 18 December at the PIP which is located in Windsor Lane.

Neighbourhood officers will be available to meet and talk to local residents, as well as answering any questions or concerns.

The PIP opened its doors to the residents of Burnham in Buckinghamshire at the beginning of this year. The PIP is staffed by trained volunteers and is a multi-functional service which provides the public with a range of advice on crime reduction and community safety as well as other police and community related information.

It will also provide an opportunity for interaction between the police and the community as well as providing opportunities to exchange community-based information.

This advice is especially poignant with Christmas fast approaching. The PIP cannot be used to report a crime or incident. This must be done via 101 for a non emergency or 999 if it is an emergency.
