Police target sat nav thefts.

Police in Birmingham have introduced a new initiative to reduce the theft of satellite navigation equipment by working alongside stores selling the systems.

Local intelligence officers from Bournville Lane police station have teamed up with local shops such as Comet, Currys, PC World and Halfords to ensure that new owners of the kits are given crime prevention packs.

The pack includes a letter detailing crime prevention tips to keep the system safe, a UV pen to mark the new equipment and leaflets.

Pc Clare Spencer, who is involved in the initiative, said: "We hope it will help to lower satellite navigation theft within the Bournville Lane policing area."
