A DVD will be launched next week to tackle an increase in doorstep crime.
The Doorstep Crime DVD, produced by the Clackmannanshire Doorstep Crime Partnership, will be available from 25 October.
The launch will take place at 10am in Parklands Hall, Alva.
Convener of Enterprise and Environment, Councillor Donald Balsillie, said, "The Doorstep Crime Initiative is important for all our communities because it addresses a growing area of crime which hits the elderly and vulnerable."
The partnership was set up in 2010 due to an increasing number of incidents where people were targeted in their own homes by criminals claiming to be roofers, builders, tree surgeons and many other types of traders who
It consists of a number of agencies including Trading Standards, Central Scotland Police, Signpost Recovery, Neighbourhood Watch Scotland and a number of Community Councils.
Mr Balsillie added, "At the launch we will ask for volunteers and those concerned about door step crime to attend a training session.
"People attending the training session will get their own copy of the DVD so that they can pass on the information particularly to the elderly and vulnerable."
