How Safe Is Your Neighbourhood?

Burglary Crime Scene

Are you aware of the levels of crime that has occurred in your local area? The UK’s largest National Locksmith has recently launched a ‘How Safe is Your Neighbourhood?’ widget on their website as part of the Company’s ongoing security awareness initiatives to bring to the attention of the public the possible security risks in their local area.

The ‘How Safe is Your Neighbourhood?’ widget will allow visitors to the Keytek™ website to input their postcode into the search bar. This will then take them to a map hosted by Police.UK (www.police.uk) that highlights specific areas where different types and frequency of crime have occurred, from anti-social behaviour through to burglary. Further to this Keytek™ have put together a dedicated ‘Security Tips’ page which can be found at https://keytek.co.uk/security-tips/. Security tips, news and advice can also be found on the emergency locksmith’s blog.

Eddie Wilkinson, Operations Director at Keytek™ commented: “We have developed our ‘How Safe is Your Neighbourhood?’ widget as part as our ongoing security initiatives to help highlight the levels of crime and as well as helping to educate the public when it comes to the importance of the security of their homes. We are hoping our ongoing efforts will encourage homeowners across the UK to be more security conscious and feel safer in their own homes and places of work.”

Keytek™ Locksmiths are also urging members of the public to join or start a Neighbourhood Watch scheme in their local area. The Company advises joining a scheme as part of their security advice. The Neighbourhood Watch works to bring neighbours together who want to look out for each other, creating strong, friendly, active communities where crime and antisocial behaviour are less likely to happen.
