FREE Emergency Contact Forms
These are a means (entirely voluntary and confidential) of providing details of any relatives/lawyer/other contact whom you would like to be informed in the event of an emergency. They can also be used to record information about people who hold keys to your property. Completed forms are passed on to the police to assist in case of emergencies – the information is not shared with any other individuals or organisations. Many people have commented that this is an excellent idea.
The forms are available here in either Word or Adobe PDF format.


Other things that you can do that cost you nothing...
- use all the locks that you have fitted in your home
- use your entry phone, if you have one fitted
- use your alarm, if you have one fitted
- don't leave possessions on display in vehicles
- don't make life easy for ciminals
- call the police if you see anything suspicious
[yes, this is often said, but it really does produce results!
For example, an observed pattern of attempted crime does lead to the capturing and conviction of known burglars]


FREE
Information Pack about the Digital Switchover
Following the talk given at our Public meeting in February 2009, several local residents asked for copies of the DVD/CD-ROM pack containing information about how to manage the switchover. These have now arrived (March 2009).
We also have a number of extra packs so, even if you hadn’t already asked for one before, we can probably oblige.


FREE way to protect your mobile phone if it's stolen.
Note down it's Make and Model number the IMEI number and PIN number.
The IMEI number is displayed when you key in *#06# and it is used by the GSM network to identify valid devices and therefore can be used to stop a stolen phone from accessing the network. For example, if a mobile phone is stolen, the owner can call his or her network provider and instruct them to "ban" the phone using its IMEI number. This renders the phone useless, whether or not the phone's SIM is changed.
If the above key sequence does not display the IMEI number, then click here.
