The police are releasing photographs of thousands of items of property recovered as part of an investigation into a prolific crime gang. They hope to reunite the items, which are believed to have come from crimes in Cambridgeshire and surrounding counties between 9 December 2016 and 9 January 2018, with their rightful owners.

Last month, the gang members were sentenced to a total of 71 years in jail. They had committed more than 200 burglaries, including nearly 100 in Cambridgeshire, costing victims more than £2 million pounds. Gang members would mask their faces using balaclavas and smash or force open doors or windows in broad daylight. They would steal specific items, mainly high-powered BMWs and Audis, firearms, cash and jewellery, all of which they could dispose of through contacts. Norfolk suffered a similar number of burglaries to Cambridgeshire while other offences took place in Suffolk, Essex and Bedfordshire.

Cambridgeshire Policing 2018

Cambridgeshire Police Force has been re-organised to meet the changing needs of the public in our rapidly expanding county.

The increased complexity and  demands of modern policing had meant that the old ways of working were hampering the ability of the police to provde the public with the service required.

 The new way of working is based on the outcomes from an eighteen month Local Policing Review and will be victim-focused and demand-led. As part of the new model the force will gain 105 extra police officers. This will provide more frontline officers and be better placed to manage demand. The aim will be to ensure that the right people are in the right place and at the right time.They know they can't be everywhere, so they will prioritise those who are most vulnerable or in urgent need of police support. They will target and bring to justice, the most dangerous offenders.

The police will focus on the public and providing them with the best possible service. As a result of these changes, the police are confident that the public will benefit.
