Officers give crime prevention advice at Romford fete

Residents were able to brush up on crime prevention tips during a fete.

Officers from Mawneys Safer Neighbourhood Team attended the fete recently at the Church Of The Ascension in Collier Row Road, Romford.

The officers spent their time distributing crime prevention literature, posters and equipment and talking to members of the community.

PC Diane Hefferan said: “It was a great day and we got to speak to lots of people from the local community who we haven’t seen before.

“Our message to residents was to enjoy the summer however to always make sure their doors and windows are locked before leaving their home”.
