Dartford and Gravesham residents set to receive anti-burglary gadgets from Kent Police

PUBLISHED: 12:05 12 November 2013 | UPDATED: 12:05 12 November 2013

Residents in Dartford and Gravesham are urged to make full use of free anti-burglary gadgets being handed out by Kent Police, as part of their Stay Safe This Autumn campaign.

As part of ‘It Takes Seconds’, police community support officers will hand out infra-red battery operated alarms, UV pens to mark property, timer switches and personal attack alarms throughout this month.

District Commander for Dartford, Ch Insp Ian Humpheryes, said: “My officers will be out and about across Dartford offering crime prevention advice and listening to any concerns you may have.

“While we do all we can to arrest and put before the courts those that commit burglary in our communities, why not take some simple steps yourself to ensure you are not a victim of crime.”

Upcoming police contact points can be found in the car park on Denton Road, in Dartford, on Wednesday from 5pm to 6pm, and at Wilmington Grammar, in Common Lane, Dartford from 2pm to 3pm the following day.

In Gravesham, the gadgets can be found outside Tesco, in New Road, Gravesend from noon to 1pm on Saturday, and again at Rochester Road Parade, in Gravesend, from 5pm to 6pm on Sunday.
