Happy Christmas to you all I hope that your preperations are going to plan. Please remain vigilant at this time of year and security concious.

The Bestwood Ward has continued to show huge reductions in dwelling burglary numbers with 78 fewer burglary offences this year that is a staggering 50% reduction.

Every day police officers face the frustration of finding property such as laptops and phones in the possession of people they know to be thieves - but often they are unable to prove the item is stolen, which would enable the police to put the offender before a court and return the property to its rightful owner. Without proving this, at times we even have to hand the items back to the person we think may have stolen it!

You can help stop this! - register all technology such as laptops, TV's, mobile phones

at www.immobilise.com.

This is particularly important with Christmas gifts coming. If something is registered - it enables us to prove it is stolen, take it from the criminal who took it and charge them with the crime.

Ps 1454 Johnson
