Keep it safe

CHURCHES could pick up extra security tips in an initiative by police.

Crime prevention advisors and neighbourhood policing teams are visiting churches across the county to help secure their buildings.

Sandra Kileen, of Northumberland Area Command, said: “Churches are an important part of our communities and we are keen to work with them as closely as we can to ensure they are as safe and secure as possible.”

To arrange a church security assessment contact police on 03456 043043, ext 63514.
