Crime Awareness DVD
Greater Manchester Police and the Manchester City Centre Crime Prevention Panel has produced a crime awareness DVD.
The DVD provides hints and crime prevention tips in relation to the security of people’s homes and vehicles, personal safety, business security and counter terrorism issues.
With additional sponsorship provided by High Sheriff’s Police Trust, NCP Manchester Ltd, The Greater Manchester Chamber, The Post Office and ERA locks have helped to create the content of the DVD and fund 10,000 initial copies.
Developed with Winning Ways, a local production company, the crime reduction messages are acted out. Featured are local student actors plus professional actors. Now at a cost of less than a first class stamp the crime prevention message can be passed far and wide in an easy and informative manner, says PC Stuart Pizzey MBE, Crime Reduction Advisor for the city centre, who devised the DVD. He said: “It has taken a long time to develop, fund and realise this DVD, but I am thrilled by the final outcome. Clear and simple crime prevention messages for all to take on board are made available to those who want to reduce the chance of them becoming a victim of crime."
PC Pizzey added: “I would also like to thank all the sponsors who have helped to make this DVD possible. They have, in their own way, helped to pass on sound crime prevention advice in a way we all enjoy passing time, watching TV!”
The initial 10,000 units are to go out at key locations within the neighbourhood areas of north and east Manchester and it is possible that the DVD will be replicated in other areas.
