THERE ARE A LARGE number of commuters who work in London, travelling from the South Coast and during the coming months, this number will be increased by those travelling to and around London especially with the forthcoming Olympic Games. There is always the danger of pickpockets being around, especially at times like these and because of this, there is a multi agency collaboration to reduce Theft of Personal Property on all modes of transport in London by 10% by July 2012. A large number of commuters who work in London travel from the counties surrounding it. With this in mind the authorities would like to get the message across to them regarding the risk of pickpockets. The website link shows some short video’s demonstrating ways in which pickpockets target people: with this in mind it is hoped to make people more aware of the potential risks when travelling on the London Underground. This far reaching project involves the British Transport Police, the Metropolitan Police and Transport for London, “Working in Partnership.” Analysis suggests that commuters using the transport network are at risk of becoming a victim of pick-pocketing offences. The most usual property to be stolen is purses, wallets and mobile telephones.  The aim is to give suitable advice to commuters in order to reduce instances of theft.  To achieve this, the authorities are seeking to make contact with people who work in London and travel at peak times.  Whilst aimed at Commuters, the message is also relevant for casual travellers to the City. British Transport Police have prepared the short presentation showing examples of how thieves work on the transport system, along with suitable advice on preventing thefts. Getting this material out to the travelling public is a difficult task for BTP.  For further information check the following website www.btp.police.uk/pickpockets.
