Beat the Burglar scheme launches in Friar Park

Beat the Burglar sessions are being rolled out across Sandwell to help residents protect their homes and property.

A two-year project will see events in each of Sandwell’s 24 wards, launching with sessions in Friar Park on Saturday 21 July. Volunteers from Sandwell Crime Prevention Panel, council teams and police will be running the sessions.

As well as giving advice, they will be handing out personal attack alarms, shed alarms, property marking packs, spike strips for the top of fences and gates, purse bells and fraud prevention sleeves for bank cards.

The Beat the Burglar sessions in Friar Park will run on Saturday 21 July as follows:

  • 10am - Corner of Solway Close/Berkshire Crescent
  • 11am - Carrington Road shopping area
  • 12noon - Corner of Richard Williams Road/Moor Street

Councillor Elaine Costigan, Sandwell Council's cabinet member for public health and protection, said: "These sessions will be a great opportunity for residents to get advice and free security products to help prevent them becoming victims of burglary.

"The council is very pleased to be able to support this initiative, working with volunteers from Sandwell Crime Prevention Panel and the police, to help our residents protect their homes and property."
