‘Get Tool Smart' drop-in sessions

‘Get Tool Smart' drop-in sessions

Following a series of thefts of tools from vans and outbuildings, such as sheds and garages recently, Suffolk Constabulary launched a countywide crime prevention campaign to raise awareness and reduce incidents.

The ‘Get Tool Smart' campaign highlights measures that can be taken by the public to protect themselves from this type of theft. It includes advice for van drivers on general security awareness, including where and how to park vehicles, installing additional security devices inside vans and tips on marking tools with a unique, traceable paint.

Posters are being circulated to businesses and building trade suppliers across Suffolk advising people of the scheme. Once done, a sticker, ‘I'm Tool Smart', has been produced which can be displayed on the vehicle/outbuilding, deterring offenders from stealing the marked tools.

In a bid to raise awareness of this type of theft, Safer Neighbourhood policing teams are holding a number of crime prevention ‘drop-in' sessions next week in the Bury St Edmunds area at the following business premises.
