Priority Objective – To raise awareness and increase PACT meeting attendance.
- Bogus Caller Safety Zones
- Vulnerable people living in the Gabalfa, Whitchurch Rd, Mynachdy areas are at risk of becoming victims of bogus callers at their homes.
Local police officers in partnership with Trading Standards are identifying clusters of streets with a high proportion of vulnerable people living there.
We are going to begin this scheme with the ‘Colony’ Rds leading from Whitchurch Rd, e.g. Canada Rd, Australia Rd and Africa Gardens. These streets will be designated ‘safe zones’ with signage being placed at the entrance to the streets to this effect.
Identified properties will be visited by an officer from Trading Standards, who will offer advice and an information pack informing residents how to deal with unknown callers at their home.
Home security advice will also be offered at these visits and referrals made to ‘Homesafe’ where appropriate in order that locks, safety catch etc may be added or upgraded.
This is a six month project that will be reviewed at the end of this time and hopefully expanded to other areas.
