Police in Suffolk are asking people in the county to consider signing up to the Suffolk SAFEKey service which helps protect and recover missing keys.

The scheme provides a unique reference number for keys on a police-branded fob, and a £10 reward for those who find missing keys and return them.

Police can notify people through their database and help return keys within 24 hours.

More than 7,000 people are already signed up, with more than 35,000 keys having been returned to their rightful owners through the initiative since it was introduced in the county.

The scheme costs £1 per month, with all funds from the SAFEKey project being put back into the community to support projects and schemes backed by the police and crime commissioner, and costs towards the scheme itself.
