POLICE visited a town centre food store to offer shoppers the chance to register their personal belongings to a crime reduction scheme.
Immobilise is a free register of possession ownership details and together with its sister site the police's www.tehmpr.com and www.checkmend.com, forms an effective tool in helping to reduce crime and repatriate recovered personal property to its rightful owners.
Police officers were at Aldi in Leek on Friday promoting the Immobilise initiative. They also visited Leek High School to encourage students to register their belongings on to the scheme.
PCSO Lauren Drew said: "Unfortunately we do get a number of calls from younger people reporting items either lost or stolen, such as mobile phones, bicycles, and laptops. All these items can be registered on Immobilise.
"Immobilise is a great way to reunite individuals with their belongings. On Friday we were inviting people to sign up to the scheme."
