POLICE: Investigate tool thefts from vans to ensure tradesmen don't lose their livelihood
0 have signed. Let’s get to 200!
There were 14,063 thefts of tools from vehicles in 2014/15, and that had risen to 22,749 in the year 2016/17. It's a rise of two-thirds. The police appear to be unwilling to investigate these thefts or offer any support to the victims. As a recent victim of this, it is extremely distressing that that the police are unable to offer any assistance and unwilling to even attend the scene of the crime.
It appears to be acceptable for people steal from you with no risk of recourse from the Police; what sort of message is this sending to society? We need the police to be able to step up and come and investigate these break ins; if they attend the scene of the crime quickly they are more likely to be able to catch the suspects and recover the stolen tools. If people know that the police will take these matters seriously it will act as a deterrent and overtime we will see a decrease in these numbers.
Tradesmen (and women) across the UK are being affected by the rising number of break ins and it's about time that the police start to do something about it!
