MORE than 100 people have picked up advice on crime prevention at a number of awareness events at Chesterfield Royal Hospital.

PCSO, Adele Chapman-Jones of the Hasland and St. Leonards Safer Neighbourhood Policing Team organised the sessions, where visitors were offered advice on how to report and deal with issues including bogus callers, unwanted telephone sales calls and anti-social behaviour. They also had the chance to pick up free UV property marking pens.

PCSO Chapman-Jones said: “The events so far have been a great opportunity for me to meet members of the community and raise their awareness in how to keep both themselves and their property safe and I look forward to speaking to more people at the next to events that are coming up.”

The remaining sessions will take place on Saturday, June 23 and Monday, July 2 between 10am and 3pm in the main entrance at Chesterfield Royal Hospital, near to the Stars information.
