  • Lewes District Commaders Monthly update posted 28th October 2014.

    Police in Sussex, Surrey, Thames Valley and Kent are working together to target cross-county burglars as the clocks go back.

    For the first time, officers from each force are co-ordinating activities during a three-week burglary campaign to catch offenders and educate residents to try to prevent them from becoming victims.

    Officers regularly liaise with colleagues across the region about individual offenders or crime gangs but in the past ran operations at different times of the year - opening the possibility that burglars simply switched their attention to homes across the border during the campaigns.

    This year a co-ordinated approach means that we will have one campaign which stretches from Chichester in the west to Margate in the east and as far north as Milton Keynes - an area of more than 5,600 square miles and more than six million people.

    The campaign is being run between 27 October and 16 November because in recent years the region has experienced a rise in reports of burglary in that period.

    A combined total of 2,645 burglaries were reported in that period in Sussex, Surrey, Kent and Thames Valley in 2012 and 2013 - up 3.5 per cent from the 2,555 burglaries reported in the three weeks prior to those periods.
    One aspect of this Campaign is the promotion of the www.immobilise.com website. This contains the world’s largest property register and I urge you to visit the site and register your own property on there. Here are some of the reasons why:-

    If your house is burgled or if you are a victim of theft, then you will have a greater chance of being reunited with your lost or stolen property
    Immobilise helps us to catch burglars and people who trade in stolen goods – giving us the evidence we need to prove that property is stolen
    Immobilise gives you an instantly accessible list of all your property and serial numbers and the facility to print off certificates of ownership for insurance companies
    Immobilise.com is a free national property registration website, any property can be registered on the site using photos and descriptions
    Registering your property is simple and only takes a few minutes
    The system is totally free and enables you to create a secure online inventory of all your property

    Property marking is also a Deterrent to any potential opportunist who may be looking to sell on stolen goods. If you would like to know more about these initiatives or you would like some help and advice about property marking or burglary prevention, then please do not hesitate to contact me or one of my Team. Alternatively you may like to pop along to a Meet me in Person session which are held in every area by the local Police Community Support Officers or you can call us on non emergency number 101.
