Safe and Secure service:
Staff are trained by Lancashire Constabulary to provide crime prevention advice. Officers will carry out:
- A survey of your home and advise on any necessary security measures to make your home safe and secure.
- Provide and install security measures to doors and windows if required.
- If you are over 60 we will provide and install Distraction burglary kits to the front door to help you tackle unscrupulous door to door salesman/cowboy builders.
We will make referrals to Lancashire Fire & Rescue service for a FREE fire safety check and installation of smoke alarms.
If you are over 60 we will carry out an Falls/Accident Prevention survey which will include inspecting your home to identify any trip, slips or fall hazards and where necessary carry out any essential repair that would prevent a fall/accident e.g. securing loose carpets, securing trailing wires, easing stiff doors, extend your phone wire so that it is nearer to where you sleep etc.
