Police in Letchworth are hosting a free tool marking event next Sunday.

Officers from the Safer Neighbourhood Team will be in the police station car park in Nevells Road between 10am and 2pm to give advice and information about crime prevention, as well as marking any tools that have been brought along.

PCSO Natasha Angwin said: “Thefts from vehicles – particularly tools in vans, as well as in garages and sheds, are a continual problem for us at the moment.

“The more people can do to protect their property, the less likely they are to become a victim of this type of crime.

“Engraving or marking your tools makes them less attractive to thieves and also easier to return if they are stolen and later recovered by police.

“We are looking forward to meeting as many people as possible and are happy to discuss any other issues or concerns.”

If you cannot make the event but would like to get your tools marked, please contact the Safer Neighbourhood Team on 01707 354192 or email
