The Safer Streets project offering free security advice and upgrades in Whitley Ward and later extended to Beal and Hensall has been extended again so that it now includes Eggborough and Kellington. So far over 425 homes and farms have 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 in an area 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. The project started as a pilot in Whitley ward. It was then extended to Beal and Hensall on 15 October and it has now been extended again so that it now includes Eggborough and Kellington.
