Callington Police have received reports that phone calls have been made offering house alarms for free with a fitting fee of £299. These alarms are meant to connect to the three emergency services. The callers give the name as 'Callington Safety Partnership' neither the council nor the Police have heard of them.
The company state that people would be cold calling but they preferred to make appointments and that payment would be in cash only. If cash isnt avaliable at home and you have no way of driving yourself to the cashpoint they will do this for you.
Please, if you receive any calls of this nature DO NOT give any information and please contact Police on 101.
Could you also share this message to make as many people aware as can be. Also as vunerable and elderly people seem to be being targetted could you advise those that you know.
