Information from Citizens Advice

Help prevent vulnerable people from becoming victims of doorstep crime and financial abuse. Learn to spot the signs of doorstep crime and financial abuse. Help to protect your family members, neighbours and friends.

Often doorstep criminals tell us our roof tiles are loose, our chimney stacks are dangerous, our trees are diseased and our driveways need jet washing.

Help keep your community safe. Report doorstep criminals as soon as you see them or tell your local Community Warden or Police Officer.

If you believe there are suspicious persons in the area, please contact Kent Police immediately on: 101 or 999 in an emergency.

Even if you’re not sure if they are a criminal report it anyway, we want to know.
