CRIME STOPPER: BE ALERT AND AVOID BECOMING A VICTIM

In a recent press conference held at the Police Headquarters, the Community Police of the Seychelles Police Force has thanked the public for their contribution and help towards the Crime Stopper initiative launched recently in the districts. Inspector Nancy Henry of the Community Policing Unit thanked the public which she said have used the two systems in place very well.

The Crime Stopper programme is composed of two systems: one where a person can call 133  and their calls remain anonymous. The second one is through an email address This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

The police has also produced publicity materials in this area such as posters and leaflet instructing the population what they can do to help prevent crime in the community.

Today www.nation.sc publishes the information available from such publications to make people more aware of the need to police their community for the betterment of them all.

Telephone Security Tips

Be wary of the telephone surveys. List only your first initial and last name in the telephone directory. If you receive a threatening or obscene telephone call, hang up. Contact the police department and make a report.

Answering machines are useful in screening calls. Your outing message should not say that you are away from home.

 When being attacked or robbed

If someone tries to snatch your purse, let it go. Most injuries from robberies occur when people resist during purse snatches.

If you are attacked, whether you resist and how you resist will depend on your personal resources and your personal values. Give some thought right now to what you would do in various situations that could rise. The more you have thought ahead, the more likely you will be to act in the way you have planned.
