Saffron Walden Police will be holding a property marking clinic at Elmdon Village Hall on Saturday 21st June from 10 till 12. Property marking (visible for items such as mowers, petrol driven garden tools or invisible for personal items like cameras, laptops and phones) not only assists with restoring your property to you in the unfortunate event of its being stolen but also provides the Police with essential evidence to link stolen property with the perpetrators of the crime if found. The Police say that visible marking of garden equipment brings a strong deterrent as marked equipment cannot be sold on. Bring your valuables to this clinic and they will be marked for you. Items can include valuable portable items like computers, cameras, Hi-Fi equipment, garden tools, bicycles, paintings, porcelain and so on. If you have items which are too large to move the Police will arrange to visit your home to do the marking. At the same time they will be providing general security advice including protecting garden sheds, fitting locks and bolts and use of CCTV. If you know now that you will need a home visit, please send an email to PC Hannah Griffiths

This Clinic will also give you the opportunity to meet our local policing team (Police constables and Police Community Support Officers. We need to promote stronger communication links with our local police force and this will be great opportunity to start that process. 

Please make every effort to attend and show the local Police team that we care about developing closer links with them.
