An unusual police mascot assisted officers identify insecure cars and properties as part of a crime cutting day of action yesterday.

Badsey Wolf patrolled the streets of Mildenhall, Newmarket and Lakenheath and discovered 24 insecurities, including the front door of a house, eight garages and 15 vehicles.

The initiative took place as part of Operation Drawbridge - a crackdown on burglary across Suffolk.

Detective Chief Inspector Bernie Morgan who oversees operations for the County Policing Command said: “These days of action are as much about crime reduction and prevention as there are about warrants and arrests.

“Burglary is an opportunist crime so if residents take simple steps to ensure that their property is secure then we can limit those opportunities and reduce the amount of people who become victims.”

The majority of the home and vehicle owners found with insecurities were made aware of the risk.
