Creating safer neighbourhoods

18th March 2022

This week I joined Gwent Police in the Llanyrafon and Croesyceiliog ward in Cwmbran, where the local community council has become the first in Gwent to sign up to the We Don’t Buy Crime Safer Neighbourhoods scheme.

The council has provided funding to allow Gwent Police to offer crime prevention packs to all local residents. The packs contain SmartWater which allows residents to forensically mark their property, and signage to deter thieves.

By becoming the first local council to sign up to the scheme, Croesyceiliog and Llanyrafon Community Council is protecting its residents, helping to make them feel safer in their homes, and sending a clear message to criminals that this is an area to avoid.
