Nominated Neighbour Scheme16 December 2020
This scheme aims to help elderly and vulnerable members of the community feel safer in their homes and reduce the chance of distraction burglars targeting the area and covers other doorstep offences such as rogue traders.
A distraction burglary involves criminals tricking their way into a home by taking advantage of the trust shown to them by the occupier.
Rogue trading is defined as “Any incident where an individual, or individuals target a consumer, deliberately overcharging for unsatisfactory goods and/or services”.
For further information and to see if the scheme is suitable for you and your neighbour, please go to our Nominated Neighbour page and follow the registration instructions.
