ON Wednesday, 12 October 2016,
Merseyside Police, working in conjunction with Wayfarers Shopping Arcade,
Southport BID team and Sefton Council, have set up a Pop Up Cop Shop, to give
help and advice to local shoppers leading up to the festive period. The shop
will be located at a unit in the Wayfarers Shopping Arcade, Lord Street,
Southport, from 10.30am to 12pm, Monday and Tuesday as well as on Thursdays and
on Fridays 12pm to 4pm. Services on offer include the following:-
► Free anti theft devices and personal security
► Tracker devices to be fitted to certain cycles for
Southport and Birkdale residents.
► Halford's will be offering free cycle checks on
cycles brought to the shop.
► Personal safety equipment.
Southport Town Centre officer Con Andy Holland said:- "We would encourage
residents to take advantage of the free services and crime prevention advice
being offered at the Cop Shop. Working closely with local partners, we can
increase people's awareness on issues including cycle and home security, and
reduce the cost of this crime to both individuals and businesses."
A spokesman for Sefton Council said:- "We are very supportive of these
kind of events and hope as many people as possible take advantage of the Pop Up
Cop Shop. Funding for some of the anti theft devices was kindly donated through
the Southport Area Committee."
