County taxis carry domestic abuse message

Denbighshire taxis will be the first in North Wales to relay this important message in both English and Welsh.

The new dash board stickers carrying the informative and impactive message about domestic abuse will be seen by all customers, from the end of this week, in the 430 licensed taxis across Denbighshire.

PC Les Jones, who came up with the sticker idea, said: “The message about domestic abuse will be relayed to thousands of men, women and children who use these vehicles, to transport them at all times of day.

“We hope the stickers will plant the seed of non-acceptance and that it will go towards reducing/preventing this often hidden crime and assists in making this county a safer place.”

The stickers will be issued in the run up to White Ribbon Day, but it is hoped the message will carry through to the festive period and beyond.

Councillor Bobby Feeley, Cabinet Lead Member for Social Care, Adults and Children’s Services, said: “This is an extremely important message that we are trying to get across to residents in Denbighshire communities and we have been considering innovative ways of getting our message across in a visual and engaging way.

“This is another great example how council departments work closely together, in close association with our colleagues at North Wales Police to help protect the public from abuse."
