The Tip of the Week is- Believe it or not older people are less often the victims of crime than their younger neighbours, however they are subjected to burglary and thief as frequently as the rest of the population. Good neighbours are vital in crime prevention and reducing the fear of crime. It is all about awareness of what is happening around you and keeping a lookout for the person near you.
