Every year the police are handed thousands of lost and stolen keys that, despite our best efforts, cannot be reunited with their rightful owners. The Constabulary is aware of the cost and concern resulting from the loss of keys, with the average cost of replacing keys on a fob being £500.
As a member of Suffolk SAFEKey you will receive a Constabulary branded key fob, with unique reference number, meaning that the police can reunite you with your lost or stolen keys regardless of whether keys are lost within the UK or EU.
As a member of Suffolk SAFEKey you can also register a ‘key holder’. A key holder is someone the Constabulary can contact to gain access to a property, if the registered owner is absent.
Membership to Suffolk SAFEKey starts from £1 a month. This money supports the Safer Suffolk Small Grants Fund, backing projects that improve the quality of life for those who live and work in Suffolk. To date over £150,000 has been given to support local grass roots projects.
To join, simply visit www.suffolk.safekey.org.uk, or call the Suffolk SAFEKey hotline 0844 4121 802. By joining Suffolk SAFEKey you will automatically be entered into a free prize draw to win £250 of high-street shopping vouchers.
Thanks for your support, and I look forward to welcoming you as a member of Suffolk SAFEKey.
