Police cadets have been getting into the community spirit by assisting officers in a crime prevention intitiative.

Rainham Neighbourhood Policing Team and London Fire Brigade received a helping hand as they knocked on doors in Brights Avenue, Wentworth Way and Waverley Road.

They spoke to residents, offering them crime prevention advice and also gave out timer switches and window alarms, while the fire officers were offering to fit smoke alarms.

PC Matt Ingram, said: “I am very proud of the work that the cadets do in the Borough. They are out almost every weekend working alongside police officers trying to make our community a safer place.”

It was done as part of the “Protected Areas” initiative, launched in October, which sees the Metropolitan Police, London Fire and Rescue and Havering Council each provide items such as security coding kits, smoke alarms and crime prevention advice.

The initiative, ongoing only in Havering, targets areas which have been hit by crime.
