Cracking down on crime
Members of the Flintshire Community Safety Partnership have met local residents
at Mold market to talk about crime prevention and community safety.
Funding secured through the Partnership has enabled North Wales Police,
Flintshire Trading Standards, Flintshire Neighbourhood Watch and Flintshire
Neighbourhood Wardens to operate a stall at markets and events throughout
August across the county.
The stall provides advice regarding the prevention of crime, and in particular
burglary. Members of the public will be able to sign up for online crime
alerts, register property and obtain a home security visit alongside advice
from Flintshire Trading Standards.
Councillor Kevin Jones, Flintshire County Council’s Cabinet Member for Waste
Strategy, Public Protection and Leisure said: “It’s fantastic to see all these
organisations working together for the benefit of the community in Flintshire.
It’s important to highlight crime prevention and make local people more secure
in their own homes so please visit the stand at these events and find out what
the Partnership can do for you.”
Neighbourhood Policing Sergeant Matthew Mitchell said: “The effects of burglary
can be very traumatic for the victim.
“By working in partnership with the Community Safety Partnership, Neighbourhood
Watch, Flintshire Neighbourhood Wardens and Trading Standards, who together
with North Wales Police secured the funding, we hope to ensure that residents
across the county are in the best possible position to avoid becoming a victim
The Partnership is scheduled to attend the following markets and events:
Friday 15 August - Flint market
Wednesday 20 August - Mold market
Thursday 21 August - Holywell market
Saturday 23 August - Mold market
Saturday 30 August – Connah’s Quay
