For years, Nottingham has suffered the highest burglary rates in the UK; if you live in NG5 you are more likely to be burgled than anywhere else in Britain. But Nottinghamshire Police have had enough and are going to extreme lengths to make the homes of Nottinghamshire safe again. The force’s Burglary Team have decided to start rigging houses with video cameras, lure the burglars in, catch their thievery red-handed on video, ID them, and then hunt them down.
With exclusive access to Nottinghamshire Police Burglary and Intelligence Teams this film reveals an innovative approach to policing Britain’s burglary capital.
