Successful student safety event
25 October 2016
In a bid to keep our students in Trent Bridge safe and help prevent them from becoming victims of crime, our Community Safety team, in partnership with the Police and Nottingham Trent University, ran a student safety and security event earlier this month.
Over two evenings in October, they visited more than 130 student properties and spoke to 57 households, engaging with the residents to give advice on keeping themselves safe and their property secure whilst living in Rushcliffe.
Other areas were discussed too, such as fire safety and social responsibility. Crime prevention items were demonstrated and left with the students to use, these included plug-in timers, personal panic alarms and items to test and prevent drink spiking.
Where student prooperties were unoccupied when officers visited, a pack containing information on safety and security advice and a handy leaflet on Trent Bridge for students detailing useful contacts and places of interest was left.
