Residents and business owners in the Peak District are being offered discounted driveway alarms to help deter thieves.
The wireless alarms usually cost between £30 and £35, but are being sold for £20 at police stations in the Derbyshire Dales. Powered by batteries, the alarms are triggered by a sensor which monitors unauthorised access to properties.
The alarm itself is portable, and can be carried up to a maximum of 90 metres away.
PC John Bointon, from Derbyshire Police, said: “This is just one of the measures people can take to make life as difficult as possible for criminals.”
