Detective Inspector Mike Ebbins, from Nottinghamshire Police, said: “Burglary is an awful invasive crime that can make people feel unsafe in their own homes. That’s why the force takes it so seriously and invests so much time into tracking down offenders and working hard to prevent these sort of upsetting crimes from happening in the first place.

Nottinghamshire Police has two proactive burglary teams which are committed to tackling this type of crime as well as supporting victims.

They say their ongoing work has contributed towards a 38-per-cent drop in house burglaries across Nottinghamshire compared to two years ago, with crime already going down before Covid.

Nottinghamshire Police also recently appointed a specialist burglary reduction officer to help prevent offences from happening.
