Free Security Assessment for Holt Park Homes

January 27th, 2011 · 1 Comment · Uncategorized

Residents of Holt Park are entitled to a free security assessment of their home.
The assessment is courtesy of leading security prevention organisation Community Action Support Against Crime (CASAC), with the possibility of any work that may be needed to improve the security of your home part funded by the council.

Councillors representing Adel and Wharfdale, the electoral ward Holt Park is apart of, have set aside £15,000 for CASAC improvements to household security in the ward.

CASAC works in partnership with West Yorkshire Police in order to reduce crime and the fear of crime across Leeds. In the last ten years they have secured over 42,000 properties with less than 1% of these properties falling victim to repeat burglary.

The main goal of West Yorkshire Police and CASAC is to educate and help people with the security of their home. Around one-in-four burglaries in West Yorkshire involves “Euro Profile” locks, which are widely used in uPVC doors, particularly older ones.

CASAC and the police have issued an appeal for householders to get their uPVC door locks checked and replaced with bump and snap secure “Euro Cylinder” locks.

Although an assessment is free, any work you wish to have done to your home will cost. However, all of the profits created by CASAC go to charity. Moreover, if you do have work carried out in your home then you may be elligible for council funding to cover part of the costs. Simply quote “Inspector Coldwell”, who is part of the local Neighbourhood Policing Team .

If you are unsure as to what locks are used in your home and would like a free assessment or simply require more advice call: 0845 519 2122.

    I had CASAC out last week! Very good service, everyone should call. There has been a surge in burglaries involving euro profile locks and CASAC can replace the locks before it happens to you. My double glazing is only 3 years old but my doors all had the unsafe type of lock
