Burglar gives lessons in security
A former burglar has joined forces with West Midlands Police to help keep people - particularly students - safe.
In a hard hitting film, Chris speaks candidly about this past offending and how he deliberately targeted student homes because "they're a soft touch."
Laptops containing vital coursework, mobiles with friends' contact details, and a host of other items were all considered fair game for the one-time career criminal who openly admits that he never once thought of his victims and showed "no remorse".
The film is part of the force's continued efforts to drive burglary down even further to new lows and is to been shown at universities in Birmingham, Coventry and Wolverhampton on a giant mobile TV screen.
