Crime Prevention Interactive House
Now anyone with access to the internet can visit the website and click onto various parts of the house to get crime prevention advice.
So if you click on the various sections displayed on the house you get helpful tips about securing it against burglars.
The interactive house was originally developed by central government’s Planning Portal to provide guidance on planning and building control policy, but has been adapted for crime prevention use with advice supplied by West Yorkshire Police.
West Yorkshire Force Crime Reduction Officer Chris Joyce, said:
“It’s extremely important that we do all we can to reduce the opportunity for crime to occur and we hope that the advice provided via the interactive house will assist members of the public to secure their homes further.
“Improving security around your home doesn’t necessarily have to cost a fortune, it can be the simple things that only take a few minutes of your time that prevents crime from taking place.
“The interactive house offers people an easy to understand and use step-by-step guide to assist securing your property and please do not hesitate to contact your local Crime Reduction Officer if you would like any further advice.”
Planning Portal director Chris Kendall said:
“This is an excellent example of innovation in the public sector. We now hope to make the House available to other forces who are interested in this novel way of presenting crime prevention advice.”
