Thames Valley Police are urging the public to make it one of their New Year’s resolutions to register personal property on the UK National Property Register, Immobilise.
Did you receive a new mobile phone, camera, bike, MP3 player or ‘sat nav’ this Christmas?
They are recommending that the public should Register your personal property at Immobilise.com so that, if your valuables get lost or stolen and police recover it, you’ll get it back. It could also help police officers to get the burglar or robber convicted.
It takes a few minutes to complete the registration, allowing you to create a free, private and secure portfolio of all your personal property.
Inspector Sean Hodgson, Force crime reduction officer, said:
Becoming a victim of crime is an incredibly upsetting experience for people, especially if personal possessions such as cameras or mobile phones are stolen with irreplaceable photos of loved ones and phone numbers of family and friends.
We are asking residents to help us and help themselves by registering all their valuables on the Immobilise database. People can register any item with a serial number.
Police officers may then be able to return any items they find to their rightful owner. It may also enable officers to secure a successful prosecution.
