Avocet Announces European Neighbourhood Watch Sponsorship

Avocet Hardware has cast its net Europe wide by becoming the sole security sponsor of the European Neighbourhood Watch Association (EUNWA) – a move it says positions itself at the forefront of the fight against the rising tide of burglary that is sweeping across the continent.

Clive Lloyd, managing director of Avocet, said: “Across Europe police forces are reporting significant increases in the number of reported burglaries – and the figures are absolutely staggering. Italy, for example, saw a rise of 61 per cent between 2008 and 2013; France 45 per cent; Germany 41 per cent; and Spain 33 per cent. In fact, only the UK reported a drop during that five year period, but sadly that’s changed dramatically over the last year.”

“Burglary is once again a major problem and our intention is to work closely with EUNWA to help prevent it escalating even further.”

Formed in 2014, EUNWA is a major European initiative in the area of safe living and crime prevention, and is currently supported by 25 European Neighbourhood Watch and crime prevention organisations from 19 different countries. Its aim is to share crime prevention strategies and solutions across the continent, with a view to making daily life safer for everyone.

Karl Brunnbauer, founder and president of EUNWA, said: “Citizens across Europe are increasingly worried about becoming victims of burglary and property crime. At the same time, organised crime does not respect national borders and criminal methods are quickly transferred from one country to another.”

“Therefore, we want to do the same with crime prevention strategies and in Avocet Hardware we have a partner not only committed to our cause, but one equipped with an incredible range of existing products, together with new and innovative ideas, which can and will assist in the reduction of burglaries across Europe.”

“Together we believe we can make a major impact in the fight against burglars and burglaries.”

Avocet recently launched its unique AIM Forensic Security System – a product that sprays burglars with a unique DNA liquid that ties the criminal to the scene of the crime and can be used in court to help secure a conviction. The company also has two of the only Euro cylinder locks in Europe to have both a TS007 3-star rating and Sold Secure’s SS312 diamond accreditation.

“Home security is always at the forefront of our minds, which has led to Avocet boasting an ever-growing range of unique and innovative products that make a positive difference in combatting burglary,” added Clive.

“And by sponsoring EUNWA we are no longer restricting our activity to Neighbourhood Watch members in England and Wales. Instead, we can now communicate with every Neighbourhood Watch organisation across Europe and by working together we can help them reduce the increase in burglary crime.”
