'Get it logged' to beat Christmas crime
Police want North Lincolnshire residents to join the fight against Christmas crime.
Officers will hold a series of roadshows in October to promote their 'Get It Logged' campaign.
Under the initiative, unique reference numbers are recorded on valuable items such as televisions, DVD players, laptop computers and mobile phones.
The data is then stored on the secure Immobilise.com website - making it more likely stolen property can be identified.

Police say logging property makes it harder for criminals to deal in stolen goods.
A spokesman said: "Being able to recognise items which have been stolen greatly increases the chances of identifying not only the burglar but also the stolen goods handlers, giving the police a real chance of prosecuting these criminals
"But this can be almost impossible if there is no way of being able to identify a potentially stolen item when carrying out checks at second hand goods dealers or when checking out a suspect."
There is no charge to residents.
