The Police and Crime Commissioner for Gwent has welcomed the news that all burglary victims in England and Wales will receive a visit from a police officer.

Jeff Cuthbert said that this was already the policy in Gwent and he was pleased it had been taken up by other police forces.

He said: “This is already our policy here in Gwent and I am glad that it will now be the case across the rest of England and Wales. Burglary is an incredibly invasive crime that can destroy lives and we are committed to ensuring that victims receive the best possible service.

“Crucially though, we want to stop people becoming victims of burglary in the first place.

“Gwent Police’s We Don’t Buy Crime team has been helping to protect our communities and disrupt the criminal supply chain, making it incredibly difficult for criminals to dispose of stolen goods. The team also provides victims with crime prevention packs to help deter reoffending.

“Through the Home Office’s Safer Streets scheme we have also secured funding to provide home security devices and other crime prevention tools for our communities.

“In recent months we have seen domestic burglaries fall in Gwent and, while we will never be complacent, I am proud that the proactive work we have been doing is now starting to show real results.”
