PRESERVE EVIDENCE TO NAIL CROOKS
You can help police tackle car break-ins by preserving any evidence, blood or tools that have been left by the thief for forensic examination. If you see blood on your car's smashed window, or a screwdriver nearby, we will call forensic officers to assess your vehicle in some cases. The same goes for homes which have been broken into. If it has, please don't touch anything or get repairs done. We'll inspect the damage. If you have CCTV, download it and bring it to the station. You can also ask your neighbours to see if their cameras have any footage of the crime.
