Lambeth Neighbourhood Watch advice

Dear All,

A large number of laptops are stolen everyday from individuals in a street, vehicles or in burglaries.  It is apparent that not many owners have taken any precautions to protect their property in any way, even though the computers hold lots of personal data and important documentation either personal or work.


In order to assist police in returning stolen items to their owners, can I please ask that you register all your property that has a make model and serial number on the free national mobile property register Immobilise which the police check property against.
