Safety stickers and door signs can be used in community schemes to combat crime and anti-social behaviour.

In the town of Padiham, Lancashire, for example, around 30 residents have joined forces to set up a Neighbourhood Watch group.

It has been set up to tackle gangs of youngsters congregating in the Printers Fold, High Close, and Low Bank areas of the town, the Lancashire Telegraph reports.

Neighbourhood Watch warning signs have been put up and information packs, that contain safety stickers that residents can use to mark their property, have been handed out to people participating g in the scheme.

"There have been a small number of crimes against vehicles in recent months that caused concern to residents," police community support officer Charlotte Broadhurst told the newspaper.

"A number of these types of crime are avoidable if crime prevention measures are taken."

Neighbourhood Watch schemes are volunteer-led, and involve members taking an active approach in looking out for signs of crime in their neighbourhoods.

Alongside fighting crime, the scheme aims to improve the relationship between communities and the police.ADNFCR-2754-ID-800362037-ADNFCR
