The Met has launched a new campaign to tackle burglary called Be Safe, which guides Londoners on basic steps to help protect them from break-ins.

It has been developed on the back of last year’s Be A Hero campaign, which aimed to highlight to residents that small actions, such as double locking doors, can make a difference in stopping burglaries.

Be Safe focuses on three steps to secure homes.

Firstly protect your valuables, secondly safeguard your building and thidly secure your outside.

A Met spokeswoman said: “This builds on last year’s key message of small crime prevention actions, but aims to encourage residents to consider all three areas when thinking of home security, rather than one piece of advice in isolation.”

In Havering, Redbridge and Barking and Dagenham officers have used automatic number plate recognition (ANPR) to trace suspects.

Earlier this month more than 5,000 vehicles were scanned resulting in arrests of people linked with several burglaries.
