I heard recently of a local Crime Prevention Panel initiative called the Home Safe Hospital Scheme and I’d urge people to take advantage of this excellent idea.
It is intended for those who are in and out of hospital and worry about their homes being left unattended.
I made inquiries and was visited by two members of the panel, pictured here from left to right, Keith Davies, and Alan Williams.
They assessed the property and assured me that they could offer assistance by way of a CCTV camera and also if required, a phone link which was PIR activated and would alert family and friends if there was any activity during the time your home was empty.
I opted for CCTV and this was fixed up for me today.
As you can imagine this will offer a lot of reassurances.
A BIG thank you to Keith, Alan, and Martin for fixing this camera today and for the professional manner in which they carried out the work.
You can contact the panel via email at alanwilliams1940 at gmail dot com or georginah555 at gmail dot com
You can also follow them on Twitter @EVTredCPP and they also have a Facebook page entitled Ebbw Vale & Tredegar Crime Prevention Panel.
*Panel members will always phone first to make an appointment with you
* will carry photo ID
This is a local initiative and for those outside this area it might be well worth contacting your local Crime Prevention Panel to see what they can offer you
