ELY residents are being given the chance to protect their property by registering it so that it is identifiable all over the UK.
The East Cambridgeshire Community Safety Partnership is running an Immobilise Registration Event at Ely Library from Tuesday until Wednesday May 23. Anyone can come along to find out more about immobilise.com and to register their own property free of charge.
If property is stolen and recovered by the police, officers can check the immobilise system from anywhere in the country to return it to its rightful owners.
Julie Buck, Corporate Strategy Officer at East Cambridgeshire District Council, said:" Being robbed or burgled is one of the most distressing things that can happen to anyone. By registering with www.immobilise.com, you can register any items which can then be identified anywhere in the country, making it far more likely that your property will be returned. More importantly it may give the police an audit trail to find the thief and bring a successful prosecution.

"Any item with a serial number can be registered free of charge. For items like jewellery or antiques there is the facility to upload three digital images of each item for a small fee. We hope as many people as possible come along and hear how a little time on the internet can save a lot of hardship in the long run.
