Public questions

Maurice – Deighton
Is there a police-recommended, easily installed, reasonably priced intercom device available, so that unexpected callers can be asked to identify themselves, without requiring  the door to be unlocked and opened?  This would provide greater security than fitting a chain.

Vivien – Malton
I am an elderly (74) disabled lady living alone on a farm. I have enjoyed very good service from both the police and the fire brigade when I have called. I worry about poachers who can be violent or threaten to burn the place down or violent burglars who might kill my dog to help them stop my dog alerting me.
