“Burglars beware” says Assistant Chief Constable Andrew Richer as the public and Bedfordshire Police unite to cut crime across the county.

Adverts telling the public ‘You lock up. We lock’em up’ are now travelling the roads of Bedfordshire to ensure everyone knows burglary is falling but that we must pull together to keep it that way.

The images of a locked door handle and handcuffs combined with the fact that burglary offences have fallen by 18% have been on show across the bus network since April 1, and are designed to remind people to lock up and look after the things they care about.

An increase in enforcement activity aimed at burglars across the county is also currently underway with those who consider buying or handling stolen goods also being targeted.
