Purse with bells attached

The Safer Bromley Partnership now has purse bells available for anyone who would like one.

They are used as an anti-theft deterrent and have received positive feedback from community members who already have them.

It comprises of a small bell, attached to a clip, which fastens onto the zip of a purse or handbag. The rattling sound it makes will alert you to anybody trying to open your bag or purse.

These have proved popular and are being distributed by some local Metropolitan Police Safer Neighbourhood teams.

They are also available free of charge from the Safer Bromley Partnership, please email community.safety@bromley.gov.uk  with your name and address to receive a purse bell in the post.
