+ Officers will continue to offer advice to communities as they crackdown on robbery and theft, and people are advised to look at the Met’s website which includes steps to help prevent people from becoming a victim of crime and what to do following a theft or robbery.
– Always be aware of your mobile and your whereabouts and act accordingly. When you have finished, put it away.
– Ensure you retain a record of your phone’s IMEI number. This is a 15-digit unique number which can be obtained by keying in *#06#. You need this information if the phone is lost or stolen. Do not keep a note of it on your phone as it defeats the object.
– Use your device’s security features, apps or PIN locking mechanisms to protect your data and prevent the phone being used if stolen.
– Consider installing a tracker app on your smartphone, which are readily available online. If your mobile’s ever stolen, act promptly.
