Action Fraud is reminding animal lovers to take extra care when buying a pet online, as new figures show more than £2.5 million has been lost to criminals through fake pet adverts. Neighbourhood Watch is promoting a new campaign: Protect your Pooch.
There a number of ways in which you can help improve the security of your home and property i.e. purchase a CCTV system. This can help deter, detect and identify criminals. It can discourage anti-social behaviour and reduce crime - offenders do not want to be caught on camera. If you’re experiencing antisocial behaviour or intimidation.
