Llandudno’s local Neighbourhood Policing Team has extended a big ‘Thankyou’ to all partner agencies for helping to make a police ‘Pop Up’ shop so successful. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

New District Inspector Kelly Isaacs along with some of the members of the local policing team visited the Neighbourhood Watch Shop on Market Street to thank volunteers at the location, Conwy Trading Standards, North Wales Fire and Rescue Service and Mostyn Estates for playing their part in the initiative. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

The Pop Up shop was set up in the town’s Victoria’s Centre and opened for three days a week throughout December and January. It was run as a crime prevention hub and to help raise awareness about staying safe over the festive period and beyond. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

Officers from various departments were also involved in the initiative including Cyber Crime Team and individuals from other agencies such as Neighbourhood Watch. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

“It’s great that shoppers and residents took the time to come and see us,” said Sergeant Louise Scullion. “Increasing awareness of crimes such as burglary, theft and vehicle crime are always important and we are glad that together with our partners we had the opportunity to highlight them via the use of a pop up shop.” ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​
