Crime prevention advice
Primary School Children from the Garioch area were invited to take part in a crime prevention competition on home and vehicle security.
With over 100 entries it proved a tough choice, however the poster drawn by Sophie Reid from Uryside Primary School was selected to be used for the local crime prevention campaign.
Garioch Local Policing inspector Gareth Hannan said: “The response to this competition was fantastic and although it was hard to choose a winner, Sophie's poster won due to its clear and simple message.
"I am grateful to Aberdeenshire Council for allowing the children to take part, and to Tesco in Inverurie who provided prizes.
“Garioch continues to be a safe place to live, with low levels of crime.
"By taking time to ensure your house and car doors are locked, you significantly reduce the risk of becoming a victim of crime.”
All residents across the north-east are reminded to lock all doors to your home and vehicle, without leaving valuables on display.
