Regular Advice Shop and Police Surgery
The Watch holds open Advice Shops on the third Saturday of every month at number 10 Sibson Road (the building next to the shoppers car park, opposite the Garden Centre) between 10 a.m. and 12 noon.
Property Marking We offer property marking with invisible UV pens or an engraver – for bicycles, power tools, lawnmowers and similar items. Postcoding your property discourages burglars and increases the chances of your property being returned if it is stolen.
It can also provide vital evidence for the Police to be able to charge a suspected thief.
Police Surgery At the same time, police officers usually also hold neighbourhood meetings. They are open to everyone and give you the chance to meet your local police officers and police community support officers.
You can also tell your neighbourhood team about the issues that may concern you, giving you the opportunity to have your say about policing in the area where you live.
Some products are supplied free to everyone, others are free only to members and the rest we sell on a not-for-profit basis.
That means we sell them at the same price we buy them for – the idea is not to make money, but use our ability to buy in bulk to make it cheaper for you to secure your property and protect yourself.
