Safer Neighbourhoods: Safer Together Weekend - Free Anti-tamper number plate screws

Anti-tamper number plate screws offered to Derbyshire Dales residents during Safer Together events next weekend

Safer Neighbourhood policing teams have around 100 free anti-tamper number plate kits, paid for by the Derbyshire Dales District Council, to offer drivers in the town this Saturday (June 15).

As well as offering advice about vehicle security, residents will be able drop by and speak about any concerns.

At the event, residents will also be encouraged to sign up to Derbyshire Alert to receive targeted information about crime, scams and crime prevention initiatives in their area.

By fitting tamper-proof screws to your vehicle it can help to reduce the chances of your number plates being stolen and potentially being used to conceal the identity of another vehicle and used in further crimes.

To meet with our Safer Neighbourhood policing teams, and to pick up an anti-tamper number plate kit come along between 12 noon and 2pm to Granby Road (outside the police station) in Bakewell.

The kits will be issued on a first come first served basis, with 100 kits allocated to this event.
