THE VALUABLE work carried out by the Safe As Houses initiative was outlined to members of Forfar Community Council this month.

Community Liaison Officer Constable Ally Smith of Tayside Police explained the project is a partnership initiative to provide safety and security advice and assistance to older, disabled and vulnerable members of the community.

Police, Social Work or GPs can refer residents to the project, or people can refer themselves if they think they can benefit from the scheme. A free crime prevention survey will be carried out by a police community liaison officer and recommendations will be made on how to improve your safety and security. Contact Tayside Police’s crime prevention officer on (01307) 475977 or Angus Care and Repair on 463232.
