MORE than 125 people had their property security marked as part of a crime prevention drive in Burnley.

On Saturday officers from the neighbourhood policing team were on hand at St Peter’s Sport and Health Centre to speak to members of the public about the importance of keeping their property safe.

Mobile phones, ipods and other property was security marked and officers handed out free purse bells, key rings and ultra violet marker pens allowing members of the public to mark their own items at home.

PCSO Frank Franco said: “It was a great success – we had lots of visitors with people queuing up to have their mobiles phones and ipods security marked – this helps to ensure they can be traced back if they are lost or stolen.

“Residents have an important role to play in helping to prevent crime by ensuring their property is security marked and by reporting anything suspicious to the police.”
