"Have faith in the community" - DI Rob Widdowson

The price of gold is high and is being targeted nationally because it is easy to get rid of. If you have gold at home think, does it really need to be there? If no then put it in a bank's safe and if yes get a safe and put it somewhere that is not obvious. Also people's homes are being entered into via the ground floor windows, so fit window alarms these will activate if the glass is smashed and fit good window locks. If you need advice on how to keep your home safe, you can call 101 and ask for PC Alan Cook, he can come out to your home if he thinks it would help to do so.

101 is the new number that is used for non emergencies it only costs 15p for the entire duration of the call and that's for landlines and mobiles.

One caller asked if twitter and Facebook are useful. Rob said that yes they are useful and they can instantly get the messages out to the communities and reach the younger generation. You can follow Detective Inspector Rob Widdowson on twitter @DIRobwiddowson.

The EDL march appeared out of the ordinary for everyone, all the police were concerned about what might happen but a lot of planning went into it and the day couldn't have gone any better.

Deedar asked Rob about pin numbers and how often we should change them. Rob's reply was that you should change your pin as often as you can as long as you can remember the numbers and also add a pin number to your mobile phone so that if it gets stolen then its harder for the person to get into it.

Detective Inspector Rob Widdowson's final message to EAVA FM's listeners is "If you see something that doesn't look right then give a call, we would rather be called out and it is nothing than for someone to be a victim of crime."
