Burglary Reduction Initiative
What is the Kettering Burglary Reduction Initiative?
The Kettering Burglary Reduction Initiative operates using funding obtained by the Kettering Borough Community Safety Partnership.
Through the project all victims of domestic burglary are visited and are provided with a crime prevention package. This applies also to homes adjacent to burgled premises.
All victims are offered a free home security survey, and whenever appropriate door locks, door chains, bolts and window locks etc are installed free of charge.
Similarly, providing all affected residents are in agreement, communal alleyways are gated and made secure, again completely free of charge. Where work has been carried out there have been very few repeat victims.
This project is an excellent example of good partnership working involving Kettering Borough Council, the Police, Victim Support and the Business Sector.
