COMMUNITY cops got into the Christmas spirit at the Hagley festive lights switch on - by dishing out seasonal crime prevention advice.

The Hagley and Rubery Safer Neighbourhood Team from West Mercia Police distributed up to 100 crime prevention packs at the event on Thursday November 24.

They also gave out a number of anti theft purse bells and purse lanyards, provided by David Rischmiller - Bromsgrove community safety projects officer.

Anyone who was unable to pick up a crime prevention pack at the switch on event can get their hands on one by contacting the Safer Neighbourhood Team. Click here for contact details.
