Easy and vital to report loss

We would like to draw your readers’ attention to the need to report any theft, pilferage, loss of property and so on — however petty — from their home or vehicle.

Too often, one hears people say: ‘Oh, it’s not worth reporting’. But it is, as each bit of information extends police intelligence thereby building a picture helping them to identify patterns and trends leading to arrests and recovery of stolen goods.

If you don’t report your loss, how do you expect to get it back when police recover a haul?

Reporting an incident could not be easier: call 101 and an officer will take down information over the phone.

Councillors John Hart and Sury Khatri

All this is another "brainwash", report crime however trivial. Unless you have money, are a personality, or dare I say it, from an ethinic background the police do not want to know. My recent experience when I phoned my local police with a "Suspects on Premises" call,was " can you describe what they are wearing", which I did. This was 11 a.m on a Sunday morning. At 16.40 hours I rang back long after the suspects had fled, to be asked "Are they still on the premises ?". When I replied "No" we'll send someone round to take details", needless to say I am still waiting.
My letter to my local M.P about the incident had no result, so whats the point of reporting crime the Police ar'nt interested and neither are the useless M.P's allegedly running the country. The above comments are my opinion.
