Cambridgeshire Constabulary’s new security toolkit

Cambridgeshire Constabulary has published on its website, a series of tools and crime prevention advice as part of its burglary campaign launched this week. As well as advice to residents going away on holiday, there is an on-line, interactive security tool where you can ‘visit’ a house and identify areas that need to be secured; a self assessment survey and interviews with a burglary victim.
