Police Scotland and partners including Trading Standards Officers today, Monday April 7, launch a major national campaign to help beat doorstep crime. Doorstep crime consists of two main separate types of offences, bogus callers and rogue traders, both of which can have a devastating effect if you fall victim to them.
To assist with this, Police Scotland has launched the ‘Nominated Neighbour Scheme’, which aims to foster local support for those who choose to not answer their door to cold-callers. Further information on this scheme can be found on the Police Scotland website or by calling your local Community Policing team on 101.
