The theft of tools from trade vehicles is very common all over Gloucestershire at present so Gloucestershire Constabulary is running a number of crime prevention events that are aimed at tradespeople over the next couple of weeks. The events focus on offering crime prevention advice and Officers will be outside Trade point at B&Q at St Oswald’s Retail Park from 8am to 3pm on Friday (17 July).  The two previous events this week have been well attended.

A number of additional events are being arranged and more details will be available on the Gloucestershire Constabulary Facebook and Twitter pages in due course.

If you see or hear anything suspicious report it straight away to 101 or online and if you believe a crime is being committed then dial 999. You can also report information regarding criminal activity anonymously to Crime Stoppers by ringing 0800 555111.
