Making sure you are safe
THE safer autumn message is being launched on the streets of Ashford by police.
During the next fortnight officers will be promoting ways residents can boost home security, working in partnership with Kent County Council and Help the Aged to reduce burglary and improve community safety.
From Monday, officers from the Community Safety Unit and the HandyVan scheme will be in the Willesborough and Newtown areas to carry out free security surveys on houses.
Basic security items will be installed to improve safety.
