This week, Coventry Police are warning criminals there is no hiding place, after launching a week of action to hit crime hard.

The dedicated week of action is focusing on tackling burglary, robbery and vehicle crime.

A week of action was called after seeing a spike in such offences, along with the aim of offering reassurance to communities across Coventry that crime will not be tolerated. 

Beat bobbies, plain-clothes officers, Force CID, dog units and traffic officers are working together to enforce the anti-crime action week.

Extra ‘lockdown’ precautions are being taken to ensure no offenders can escape being captured.

Detective Chief Inspector Tony Bennett, from Coventry Police, said: "We don’t underestimate the impact such crimes can have on our communities which is why we have launched this dedicated week of action. 

"We will have a significant amount of resources committed to targeting and catching suspected robbers, burglars and vehicle thieves and making our neighbourhoods safer. 

"This highly visible presence will help to reassure our communities we are committed to tackling such crimes." 

Throughout the week of action, officers will be visiting homes, businesses and university campuses to offer crime prevention tips.

Tips to householders include keeping doors and windows secure, leaving lights on at home and making sure sheds are secure with padlocks.

Further advice can be found on the West Midlands Police website.
