Police Send Burglars ‘We Know Where You Live’ Cards

Daventry Area Crime -

Burglars across the county will be getting something extra from ‘Santa’ over the Christmas period. 

Northamptonshire Police detectives have got a hold of Santa’s naughty list and, having checked it twice, are sending out special Christmas cards to their favourite burglars.

The cards with the message, “He knows where you live. So do we” are all part of the force’s current zero-tolerance approach and part of Operation Crooked, the force’s high-profile campaign to reduce local burglaries.

Detective Inspector Wayne Preece, said: “Sending out these Christmas cards may seem like a bold move but I want there to be no confusion here – we absolutely do not tolerate burglary in Northamptonshire.

“I hope these Christmas cards serve as a reminder to people that not only do we know where they live, but that we will take swift and robust action against anyone who thinks committing these crimes is acceptable.

“Everyone deserves to feel safe in their homes and burglars completely violate that feeling. We will do all we can to tackle burglars and sending these cards is just one tactic we are using.

“Burglars are not welcome in Northamptonshire and I hope the people who receive these cards take them as a friendly message to have a fantastic crime-free Christmas.”

20% Burglary Crime Drop

Police say that the operation has resulted in a decrease of over 20% since it began and the figures continue to drop. Burglary squad detectives are pledging to visit every single burglary victim in Northamptonshire – an ambitious target and one that most (if not all) forces across the country don’t even come close to.

Reporting Crime

Anyone with information about burglaries in the county is encouraged to call Northamptonshire Police on 101 or 999 if it’s an emergency or if a crime is in progress.
