Last week West Mercia Police launched Citadel, a new initiative aimed at driving down the number of burglaries committed in the force area
It involves the use of a range of operational tactics, such as greater analysis of crime patterns, coordinated use of new technology such as Automatic Number Plate Recognition software, partnership work and high visibility patrols in burglary hotspots, along with a targeted crime prevention advice campaign.
