    It brings together government, police, industry and charities to explore what more can be done to combat this intrusive crime.



    The Policing Minister today chaired the first meeting of a new taskforce that will drive work to tackle residential burglary.
    The taskforce brings together the police, industry leads, charities such as Crimestoppers and Victim Support and the government to look at what more can be done to combat these crimes and to agree actions.
    Themes include making homes more secure, preventing criminals from selling on stolen goods, and improving the wider police and criminal justice system response.
    Minister for Policing and the Fire Service Nick Hurd said:
    Being burgled doesn’t just mean the loss of valuable and sentimental items – it also makes us feel less safe in our homes and has a damaging effect on communities.
    I’m pleased that burglary levels have fallen significantly in recent years, but with hundreds of thousands of people suffering this intrusive crime every year, more needs to be done to combat it.
    It’s vital that we work with partners, policy and industry on this.
    Police recorded crime statistics for England and Wales published by the Home Office last week showed that burglary dropped by 3% compared with the previous year, and by 20% compared with the year to June 2010.
    Earlier this month, the Home Secretary, Sajid Javid, called for government and industry to work together to design products and buildings so that such crimes are more difficult to commit.
    In January, the Policing Minister chaired the first meeting of the vehicle theft taskforce, bringing together industry and police to strengthen the response to this type of crime. Moped crime has already been cut dramatically thanks to the introduction of new anti-theft devices, along with tough law enforcement.
    Deputy Chief Constable Chris Rowley, the National Police Chiefs’ Council lead for burglary, said:
    Police officers know how distressing a burglary is for victims and are totally committed to tackling these crimes.
    The burglary taskforce will help us bring everyone involved to the table so we can continue to work together to prevent burglary - and when it does take place, to bring offenders to justice.
    At the first meeting, the taskforce discussed the scale of the threat and methods that can help reduce burglary. It will meet every 6 months.

    Maybe start with tidying up all the outstanding warrants for known offenders regardless of the offence. Then maybe move onto a disruption pattern for known burglars. Just saying, not rocket science.

    Your having a laugh. With all the cuts to the Police workforce and the huge cuts to their spending which where put in place by our shambolic Prime Minister when she was Home Secretary, how do you propose they can realistically carry out your genius master plan?

    According to statistics only 10% of burglaries result in convictions. So unless the burglar cuts him self and leaves a massive trail of DNA evidence or something else like that, Because CSI teams don’t bother as on average they can turn up to 3 days later.You have know chance of catching them.Blame that on government,Brexit,the Pope who ever. That’s how it is.
