Reading Inspector Booth’s comments on protecting your property is an eye opener.
That’s how to protect, now can we look at what the police can do if and when you get burgled.
Can they call on the neighbours and question them, can they also question the man suspected of doing the burglary.
If the man is already in court for another offence, does that allow the police to question him.
Is it correct for the CPO to say don’t worry we have him on another charge or the CPO to say we need evidence.
Surely that is what they are supposed to collect by questioning the neighbours and exercising the dog to urinate on the gate post is not proof of police investigations.
