Selby police are holding vehicle crime prevention sessions across five villages in the district today (Saturday 13 April 2013).  

Officers from the local Safer Neighbourhood Team will be hosting 45-minute road-shows at Burton Salmon, Byram and Brotherton, Fairburn and Birkin.

The team will be on hand to give away free catalytic converter marking kits, free number plate theft packs and will provide free property marking and registration on the Immobilise property register for small, high value items.

Police Community Support Officer, Rebecca Chessman, said: “It’s important that we get out into our communities and raise awareness of the various crime prevention tools which are available to members of the public. Not everyone has the time to call in at the main police stations to ask for advice or pick up a kit.

“By taking our events right into the heart of our communities, we hope more people will take up the offers and benefit from increased security.

“It’s also a good opportunity for members of the public to come along and have a chat with us and meet their local policing team. We’ll be in each village for around 45 minutes so don’t miss your chance to pick up some free crime prevention kits!”

Location and times:

Burton Salmon 9:30am -10:15am at the village hall on Main Street

Byram and Brotherton 10:30am -11:15am at the village hall on Great North Road

Fairburn 11:30am -12:15pm at the village hall on Great North Road

Birkin 13:30pm -14:15pm near the Church
