West Mercia Police are forming partnerships with local businesses and communities to join forces against reducing crime.
Officers are aware acquisitive crime, including burglary, robbery and theft, harms our communities as a person’s home and possessions often carry an emotional attachment and when a criminal interferes with this, it can have a long-lasting impact on victims.
‘We Don’t Buy Crime’ demonstrates the commitment to fighting crime by taking an innovative approach to reducing and disrupting the market for stolen goods and protecting your home and possessions by making them less attractive to the would-be criminal.
