DON’T MESS WITH EV­I­DENCE

YOU can help po­lice tackle car break-ins by pre­serv­ing any ev­i­dence, blood or tools that has been left be­hind 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 in to. Don’t touch any­thing or get re­pairs done. We’ll in­spect the house and the dam­age for foren­sic ev­i­dence. 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.
