As part of a month of awareness raising WAM Get Involved in partnership with Stop Loan Sharks are running a short training session, the purpose of which is to provide knowledge and information about the project and how we can help those who have borrowed from illegal lenders. The length of the session is one hour. The presentation will include key things to look out for as a sign that a colleague, client or friend may be involved with a loan shark. We will show the impact that illegal lenders have on victims and communities and how we can work together. The session will cover each of the following areas:
Background to the Stop Loan Sharks Project.
Introduction to Loan Sharking.
- What is a loan shark?
- Size and scale of the issue
- How loan sharks operate
Victims and Loan Sharks.

CCTV shows a man walking up to the bike, kneeling down to fiddle with the lock, then swings the bike up and around and cycles off. A light blue, Boardman bike - WITH FRAME NUMBER !. Combination locks can be ‘snapped’ if ‘jerked’, so they are not the best protection for a bike. Tough D locks - and several of them are the best deterrent - see PCSO Liz Davidson’s really good handout, which I have attached.

I have had this in from PCSO Nick Gent, who covers Maidenhead South: Hi Jeff, we have had a call from a resident in Bray regarding some suspicious charity collectors. It’s not clear if they were or were not genuine. Speaking to the resident, he had concerns for other residents who might be vulnerable. I am going to do some door knocks at the properties he has identified, but I have also suggested he put some crime prevention advice in his newsletter / residents email chain.
