Police in burglary clampdown

Have your say

A week-long operation has been launched by police to reduce the number of burglaries and bring those responsible before the courts.

Officers from across a number of districts will be mounting vehicle check points, conducting searches at premises of interest, deploying cash sniffer dogs and providing advice and information to householders and business owners on how to secure their premises.

Supt David Moore said, “Police intend to make sure any burglary hotspots are receiving increased attention. As part of the overall operational plan, we will also be mounting checkpoints on roads to clamp down on travelling criminals.”
