Beat the Burglar

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.

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.

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 project, which is supported by a £9,403.02 council town grant, launched in July 2018 with sessions held in Friar Park ward in Wednesbury.

We’ll let you know when we’re in your area. Look out for leaflets about the sessions.
