The Safer Streets project offering free security advice and upgrades has been extended to Beal and Hensall – more than 300 homes and farms in Whitley ward have already joined the scheme
The Safer Streets Project, managed by North Yorkshire Police, is offering free home and farm security checks and improved protection thanks to a Government grant of £548,980. The project was launched in August after Julia Mulligan, Police Fire and Crime Commissioner secured the funding from a £25M scheme launched earlier this year by Government.
The objective of the scheme is to prevent crime by having the majority of homes protected by alarm systems and barriers to entry. The barriers can be upgraded locks on individual properties or barriers that prevent access to groups of properties or farm premises in rural locations. This is being run as a pilot project in Whitley ward and it has now been extended to include Beal and Hensall.

The scheme is currently only available in Whitley Ward ( Whitley, Kirk Smeaton, Little Smeaton, Balne, Great Heck, Womersley and Cridling Stubbs) and now with the addition of Beal and Hensall.
