New scheme to cut garden crime

THE fight against garden crime steps up a gear next week with a security marking session organised by Horncastle Police in Lincolcshire
A mobile police station will be located at Horncastle Allotments, off Boston Road, between 3 and 8pm on Monday, June 8. Officers will be on hand to security mark garden equipment and hand tools and give out crime prevention advice.PCSO Nigel Wass of Horncastle Police said: "In the spring we usually see a rise in garden shed burglaries particularly as the demand for cheap, secondhand gardening equipment increases. "The session is also being used as an opportunity to launch a new Allotment Watch, aimed at bringing the gardening and home producing community together in the fight against garden crime.*
