Distraction Burglaries

Posted on: 11th January 2012

Andrew George has signed EDM2588. Motion reads: “That this House notes the rise of so-called distraction burglaries on vulnerable elderly people; expresses condemnation on those who would carry out these attacks; calls on the police forces in each region to implement a strategy which highlights these types of burglaries and ensures that elderly people are aware of the protocol for letting people into their home; and further calls for much tougher sentencing of those who are caught and found guilty of this disgraceful type of crime.”
