A PROJECT aimed at tackling burglary and crime prevention is to be held in Exmouth on Wednesday.

The town's neighbourhood police team will hold a seminar at the Pavilion providing advice for neighbourhood watch coordinators to relay information to the community.

And, in the afternoon police stop checks will take place targeting travelling criminals.

The project is part of Devon and Cornwall Constabulary's Operation Everest - a day-long campaign hoped to reduce crime and fear through a number of policing and enforcement activities.

Chief Superintendent Andy Clarke, commander of operations, said: "There will be a highly visible police presence across our communities next Wednesday working with our partners on a range of activities that focus on burglary and crime prevention."

Chief Supt Clarke said this type of campaign enabled the police to coordinate officers and staff to demonstrate to their communities that they were always there.

"We work hard to keep our communities safe and we can only do that by listening and working with our local neighbourhoods and businesses," he added.

High visibility patrols will take place across the force in identified burglary hotspot areas and schools and businesses will be visited where crime prevention advice will be given.

The Operation Everest campaign will also include a number of warrants being executed during the day targeting properties suspected to have stolen goods.
