The CPP created a week-long integrated communications campaign to raise awareness of doorstep crime and empower people to act. This was built on engaging and working with partners across the public, consumer and voluntary sectors as well as professionals best placed to help protect vulnerable citizens from these rogues traders. The Campaign achieved strong media coverage and had a real impact on raising awareness of doorstep crime.
