FIRMS in Rotherham are to be given crime prevention advice from Police Community Support Officers trained in helping reduce the risk of being targeted.
Four PCSOs have undertaken extra training to help firms, who will receive 12 hours of bespoke crime prevention advice which could normally cost up to £2,500 from a private contractor.
PCSO Elizabeth Taylor said: “It is a fantastic initiative that makes businesses feel part of their communities. They are all getting value for money from the service and we have had some superb feedback from businesses we have given advice to.”
Businesses should call their local Safer Neighbourhood Team on 101.
