Coleford School Hosts Crime Prevention Event

Posted: 01/05/2008 22:38:17

Crime prevention officers from Gloucestershire Constabulary are to hold a special open morning in a bid to combat equine related crime in the county.

Horse owners are being invited to attend Lakers School in Coleford with their animals on Monday May 12 (10.30am – 12.30pm) where they will be given advice on how to keep them and their expensive tack safe.

Horses brought to the school will be protected by the latest crime prevention technology and a micro-chip service will be on offer from a local vet who will chip both horses and saddles.

Smartwater will also be available to be utilised on tack items.

Crime Reduction Officer PC Darren Peters said: “There is a lucrative market out there for people who steal horses and their tack.

“However, micro-chipping horses and marking tack items makes it increasingly difficult for the criminal fraternity to sell these items on and we would advise all horse owners to take advantage of these services.”

And he added: “We are grateful to Lakers School for allowing us to use their facilities for the day.

“This is a great opportunity for the pupils to see some of the horses and to witness first hand the importance of crime prevention.”

Teacher Carol Limming added: “This is a wonderful opportunity for pupils to see the impact that scientific innovations like Smartwater and Micro-chips can have on preventing crime.”

Any horse owners wishing to attend the event should bring their horses and tack to the Park Road entrance to the school site.

Horses can be micro-chipped for £10, Saddles micro-chipped for £20 and Smartwater will be available for £15.

Owners are responsible for horses and tack at all times.
