|Police Launch Burglary Crackdown|
Operation Lockdown is underway
Merton police have launched Operation Lockdown - a three-month burglary initiative targeting known hotspots across the borough.
They say they will employ a range of tactics to disrupt burglary, gain intelligence and arrest and convict offenders in areas they have identified.
Police are reminiding residents to lock doors and windows when they go out, to keep ground floor doors and windows closed and secure when they go to bed and not to leave expensive and valuable items in view of passers by.
