Security alert telephone calls

The Police have had reports of a Leicestershire resident receiving a telephone call from a with held number stating ‘that a security alert was happening at the weekend and that they needed a security device to alert police and fire departments’.

The resident told the caller that they would check with police first and the caller immediately ended the call.

We would ask for your help in passing this information out in the community, especially to the elderly and vulnerable and telephone 101 if you should receive a telephone call of this type.
