Free home security checks for the elderly and vulnerable aim to shut out crooks


Older and vulnerable people are being urged to sign up for a free home security check.

The Bobby Team, supported by the Bedfordshire Police Partnership Trust and Bedfordshire Police, is offering the service to householders aged over 65, the vulnerable and those that are disabled.

Trained crime prevention advisors and qualified carpenters make up the team, which will carry out a survey of the property, identify any vulnerable areas and where appropriate, improve the security with locks, door chains and other crime prevention equipment.

In partnership with Bedfordshire Fire and Rescue Sservice they also fit smoke detectors.
