IN light of Op­er­a­tion Sleeper, a metropoli­tan-wide po­lice ini­tia­tive to en­gage with public trans­port com­muters, there are a num­ber of tips peo­ple should re­mem­ber while trav­el­ling on buses and trains. Don’t have your mo­bile phone on dis­play and don’t plug your ear­phones into your ears from your mo­bile phone or iPod and lose con­text of what's hap­pen­ing around you. Don’t go places by your­self and don’t turn up your mu­sic to such a point you can’t hear any­thing else. Don’t put your valu­ables on dis­play where they are tempt­ing to op­por­tunist thieves. The num­ber of peo­ple who accidentally leave their mo­bile phone on the seat be­side them­selves and then sud­denly re­alise they have to get off, get up and walk off and leave their phone there for an op­por­tunist thief is vast. - Se­nior Sergeant Dave Hooper
