POLICE in Ely are encouraging people to protect their valuables by registering them on an internet database.

Immobilise is a nationwide secure database system that allows people to protect any item that has a unique serial number such as mobile phones, laptop computers, iPods, bicycles, and cameras.

Registering is free, quick and easy.

Once a phone is registered, should the phone be lost or stolen, it can be reported online and the phone immobilised immediately by all service providers.

Cambridgeshire police can search this system for lost or stolen items. It enables police officers to search the database for the rightful owner of any recovered items and quickly re-unite them with their property.

Police made people aware of the scheme at a recent surgery held in Ely Market Square
