Daily Security

  • Keep all wallets, purses, credit cards and car keys out of sight and out of reach.
  • If you leave your house empty, even if you are in the back garden, lock all the doors and windows.
  • An intruder alarm can be an effective deterrent against burglars, seek advice to ensure it is the most suitable for your needs.
  • Make it a habit to mark your valuables by using your postcode and house number or name.
  • Some articles are unsuitable for marking so photograph them next to a ruler.
  • Register your property at immobilise.com, it's free of charge and can increase your chances of being reunited with your property.

    Details: Telephone call purporting to be a police officer advising resident they have been a victim of scam and to withdraw large amount of cash from their account – and the call is to assist with police enquiries!
     
    Courier fraud is becoming more prevalent and sophisticated. 
    Usually the elderly are targeted. Fraudsters will telephone a potential victim purporting to be from their bank, from the police or other law enforcement authority. They then dupe the person into revealing their PIN and handing over their debit or credit card.
    Protect yourself against courier fraud
  • Your bank will never send a courier to your home.
  • Your bank and the police will never collect your bank card.
  • Your bank and the police will never ask for your PIN.
  • If you receive one of these calls end it immediately.

  • Home Office to review air weapons regulation in England and Wales
    The debate was secured by Bristol South MP Karin Smyth after the serious injury in her constituency of 18-month-old Harry Studley in July last year, who was shot with an air rifle by a neighbour.
    That incident followed the case of Benjamin Wragge, aged 13 from Suffolk, who died in May 2016 after he was accidentally shot with an air weapon. Her Majesty’s Senior Coroner for Suffolk, Dr Peter Dean, wrote to the Home Office requesting a review of legislation covering the use and manufacture of air weapons, with a view to preventing similar tragedies occurring in the future.
    The Home Office will determine the detail and scope of the review and, today (10 October), has published a revised edition of the Home Office guidance leaflet https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/air-weapons-a-brief-guide-to-safety-jan-2011  for air weapons users.
    The leaflet will be available online and will also be distributed to readers of Airgun World and Airgunner. It advises on the laws and safety procedures to which all air weapon owners must adhere.

  • Not all drugs are addictive, but some drug users do develop a dependence. People who are dealing with addiction usually:
  • Feel the need for the drug regularly. 
  • Have a constant supply of it.
  • Have failed to stop using.
  • Will do things they normally wouldn't do (such as stealing).

Sometimes people who have a problem don’t think they have or refuse to believe that they are addicted or dependent. So if you think your friend has a problem and you want to help them, think about how you're going to approach it and what you’re going to say.  It could be a sensitive subject for them and you don’t what to looking like you’re nagging them. They may not listen to you at first but don’t let this put you off.  The best thing that you can do is to be there for them, to support and encourage them to change.

A good thing to do is keep your friend away from situations or places which might entice them - like say the pub or a mate's house. Rather, show them some other things to do to keep themselves busy.

With the proper help and support, many drug users are able to overcome their drug use before any serious harm has been done to them, or their family and friends.  Other drug users have to hit rock bottom before they can see the harm and damage they are doing and start addressing their drug use.

There are a number of ways to get the information you need to help your friend. You may want to know more about the drug by exploring our A-Z of drugs, read about treatment or to find out what services are available to you locally. And of course, you or your friend can call FRANK anytime on 0300 123 6600 for confidential advice.
