Leicestershire Police have released a statement after a senior police officer from the force was criticised for suggesting that some burglaries should not be investigated if doors and windows have been left open.
The force has reassured the public that they will 'of course' be investigating preventable burglaries:
We do, and will continue to, prioritise the investigation of all reports of domestic burglaries received from members of the public in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland.
There are no plans to change this whatsoever, a point made to the reporter from the Loughborough Echo in the original interview.
We recognise the impact that burglaries have on victims and will always relentlessly pursue those responsible for this type of crime, in order to bring them to justice.
In the original interview, Mr Kay was clear that he was posing a hypothetical question, to help generate a debate about how we should highlight the importance of crime prevention and how we ‘nudge’ people to take home security far more seriously and therefore help prevent them becoming a victim of crime.
Hinckley and Bosworth Borough Council needed six workers and a digger to clear the rubbish.Read the full story ›
