Immobilise.com is a Home office backed, free to use website where users can create an account of their household goods for free. In the unfortunate event of any of the items being stolen they can update their account and mark the item as stolen.
Immobilise.com is the first port of call for the police when trying to identify stolen goods and can increase the chances of them being returned to their rightful owner.
PCSO Burtoft had this to say about immobilise.com;
it really is a great idea, it increases the chances of stolen property being found by the Police and reclaimed, it also reduces the number of different avenues historically used by burglars to profit from their crime, oh and its free of charge
