Suffolk: Christmas Cards For Criminals

Criminals in Suffolk are getting special Christmas cards delivered from the police.

Suffolk Police will be sending Christmas cards to known prolific offenders in Ipswich in a bid to encourage them to not commit further offences.

Over the next few days Ipswich officers will post the cards by hand to the home addresses of 12 previous offenders to warn them that they are being watched by police.

Inspector Jim Gooding from Ipswich Response said: "We want to encourage those who may be thinking of committing a crime to think about the consequences of doing so, especially over the festive period.

"We want them to be aware that we are watching them and that if they commit a crime we will be dealing with them robustly."

If you witness a crime taking place please call 999 immediately or if you have seen anything suspicious please call 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
