Danish cops recruit robbers to stem burglaries

Font size: Decrease font Enlarge font

What to do when burglaries get out of hand?
In Denmark, police think they might have the answer: Turn to the experts themselves, the housebreakers. Northern Zealand police says burglars caught red-handed in the district will be asked to participate in an anonymous questionnaire about their profession.
The region, which has seen a 60 percent annual surge in break-ins in some areas, will ask robbers questions about their typical targets, motives and disposal methods for stolen goods.
The police conceded they are not sure of the project’s success but said today “we’ll do anything we can to lower the number (of burglaries).”
The project is planned to last a few months.
