Lancaster University has been praised for the special projects it has run in conjunction with crime fighting charity LANPAC (Lancashire Partnership Against Crime).
One of them, the SAFE project, involves student volunteers making home visits to elderly and vulnerable residents in Lancaster and Morecambe to raise awareness of bogus callers crime and installing crime prevention equipment.
Ian Groundwater, LANPAC manager, said: “It is true to say that we could not run our day-to-day activities of providing instant funding to address urgent neighbourhood concerns without the support of our members.”
“We are extremely grateful for the support that Lancaster University have provided over the last 20 years”.
Richard Clark, LUSU Vice President Academic, said: “LANPAC has really helped make a positive difference regarding student welfare over the last 20 years. The work it does is invaluable for the local community.”
Mark Salisbury, Lancaster University security operations manager, added: “Working in partnership with Lancashire Constabulary for years is a remarkable achievement.”
