No Cold Calling Zones
No Cold calling Zones are an initaitive of Hampshire County Council to help combat the problem of doorstep crime. Supported by Hampshire Constabulary and partners, NCCZ aim to make residents feel safer in their own homes. NCCZ do not ban cold callers or create exclusion zones, however they can be effective in deterring unscrupulous cold callers from approaching people living in the zones and giving residents the confidence to say "No".
NCCZ can either be set up from local intelligence or a request, but both require the sucessful completion of a consultation process. This can lead to the provision of door stickers and signage, for the purpose of labelling the zone and empowering residents.
It works! NCCZ have proved to be a success across the country. Since the introduction of a zone in their area:
* 72% of residents felt safer living in a No Cold Calling Zone
* 74% of residents felt more confident when dealing with cold callers
