Personal safety alarms have been given to Sittingbourne commuters as part of a visit by officers to Sittingbourne Train Station.
Sittingbourne’s Town Centre PCSO Gregory Cain, and Swale’s Crime Prevention PCSO Matt Tennant, set up a stand on Tuesday 9 November to talk to commuters about their personal safety. They also gave out free personal alarms and anti-drink spiking bottle stoppers.
The initiative was supported by Swale Council’s Community Safety Partnership which helped to provide the items given to commuters.
Officers also spoke to commuters about safety initiative, ‘Ask for Angela’, which allows people who feel unsafe, vulnerable or threatened to discreetly seek help by approaching staff at pubs, clubs and other venues and asking them for ‘Angela’.
