This is a free scheme to deter cold callers and rogue traders and help vulnerable and elderly people feel safer in their own homes.
It is funded by the West Mercia Police and Crime Commissioner to help reduce doorstep crime.
Nominated Neighbour uses bright yellow window stickers to show potential house callers that that they will only been seen if accompanied by a known and trusted person after their identity has been verified by that person.
All it takes is a neighbour, family friend or family member to agree to be nominated and have callers directed to them.
The scheme deters scam callers, who will not want their identity to be checked. In addition to the window sticker, a pack containing useful information on keeping safe is also provided.
Further information can be found at: Nominated Neighbour Scheme.
