Y&H Police forces trapping burglars with technology

Published: Mon, 29 Mar 2010 16:17:30

High-tech equipment, including surveillance cameras and tracking equipment, is being used by police to catch burglars thanks to a £2 million cash boost Home Office Minister Alan Campbell announced today (26 March 2010).

The money from the Securing Homes programme was allocated to 16 forces across the country, including North Yorkshire, South Yorkshire and Humberside Police, to buy technology to improve burglary detection. Some of the items purchased by forces included automatic number plate recognition (ANPR) systems, tracking equipment, forensic scanners, intruder alarms, CCTV and property marking kits.  Equipment is being used for both overt and covert police operations.
