It isn’t just the British weather that could ruin your summer if you don’t take simple steps to help reduce your chances of becoming a victim of crime.
During July and August, we tend to see an increase in reports of anti-social behaviour, sneak in burglary, theft and irresponsible drinking.
Our late summer campaign aims to remind communities of how they can work with police to ensure a safer summer for everyone by following some straightforward advice.
The campaign’s four strands each carry their own simple crime reduction message which will be displayed across the West Midlands on billboards, a-frame trailers and the rears of public buses. Our key messages are:
This brand new ‘Safer Summer’ microsite is dedicated to seasonal crime reduction advice tailored to the four strands of our campaign.
Please take some time to explore each section and get set for a great summer!
This microsite is supported by colourful postcards and leaflets containing safety advice to help reach audiences who may not have access to or be able to use the internet. Please contact your local neighbourhood team for more information on how to get a copy.
