New "No Cold Callers" Campaign is underway!
Devon and Cornwall Police and Trading Standards have created the Devon and Cornwall Doorstep Crime Reduction Partnership to work together to tackle criminals that come to your door. A new information pack and No Cold Caller Sticker, which will be available free to Devon Residents, has been developed by the partnership.
The aim of the new information pack (1.88MB - pdf help) is to offer you advice on how to deal with cold callers, to help prevent YOU from becoming a victim of doorstep crime. The leaflet also includes a reporting form which gives guidance on the information the police and trading standards will find most useful if you report a rogue trader operating in your local area. We want to encourage as many Devon Residents as possible to display the 'No Cold Callers' sticker (629KB - pdf help).
