Suffolk Police urge residents to report crime following an increase in burglaries
Suffolk Police are urging residents to report any information they may have on crime in their area, following an increase in burglaries in the county over the past week.
Forty-two incidents of house burglaries have been recorded over the last seven days and officers are appealing for the public to give them information, no matter how minor, to help them in catching those responsible.
Under Operation Drawbridge, officers have been working to pro-actively tackle this type of crime, by promoting safety advice and by working to bring more offenders to justice.
Detective Chief Inspector Bernie Morgan, said: “We have been working extremely hard to tackle this type of crime, and have been carrying out pro-active operations across the county to target offenders and to disrupt criminals who choose to commit these crimes.
“Our operations are producing results but we need the help of our communities to give us any information that could help us in catching offenders and stopping them from entering people’s homes. No matter how minor you think the detail is, it could be crucial in helping us trace those responsible.
“The people committing these crimes are not invisible and I would urge members of the public to report suspicious activity immediately by ringing 999.”
Anyone with information regarding house burglaries or any other crime is asked to call Suffolk Police on the non emergency number 101.
