Police are reminding residents to get it logged to get it back as a campaign to stop thieves in their tracks continues across the force.
Residents are urged to get bikes, phones, electricals, tools and other valuables registered with free property logging website immobilise.com.
It is part of Operation Soundwave – a campaign aimed at ‘turning up the volume’ on crime and tackling opportunist thieves and burglars across the force.
Immobilise is the world’s largest register of property where members of the public can register their valuables. It’s free to register and takes just a few minutes to sign up.
Ownership details can be viewed by police across the country on the National Mobile Property Register (NMPR), which allows officers to check a recovered item and instantly find the owner.
Northumbria Police Temporary Assistant Chief Constable Gary Calvert said: “A big part of Operation Soundwave is helping residents secure their property and making sure they have the right advice to keep their homes, vehicles and valuables safe, and immobilise has a key role to play in that.”
People are encouraged to sign up to www.Immobilise.com to register their valuable and sentimental items.
