Britain’s police chiefs will be urged to send officers to every robbery, the head of police training has promised.

The head of the College of Police, Police Chief Andy Marsh, promised to write to every police chief and crime commissioner, insisting that it was “the right thing to do” to attend every raid.

Marsh said evidence showed home visits reduced break-ins and discouraged assailants from targeting the same area more than once.

His comments come after Scotland Yard’s new commissioner, Sir Mark Rowley, announced that his officers would attend all national raids in an unprecedented campaign against thefts.

Sir Mark has warned the capital’s courts to brace for a massive surge in cases, as he instructs officers to remove wanted burglars, burglars and suspects from the streets in a 100-day crackdown.

And Marsh, who was chief constable in the Hampshire and Avon and Somerset police forces before his appointment last summer, echoed the need to prioritize robberies, arguing that the same approach should be implemented across the UK.

Speaking at the Police Foundation’s John Harris memorial conference in central London on Wednesday, he said: “This week I will be writing to all police chiefs and police and crime commissioners setting out the evidence on what works for reduce crime and prevent theft. And, in fact, there is evidence that going from house to house and carrying out [inquiries] it reveals evidence you might not otherwise be able to find.

‘There is evidence that if your home is burglarized, a home within four meters of you is much more likely to be burglarized in the next two weeks. And you’re not going to avoid that unless you do a house-to-house reaffirmation and gather evidence.

A strategic review by the Police Foundation found that detection rates have almost halved in seven years.

Robbery victims often suffered severe psychological trauma that must be taken into account when prioritizing crimes, Marsh said.

“Our home is our castle and an intrusion into it is a very personal thing.

‘Then we should be able to attend all robberies; it’s the right thing to do and the evidence supports it.’

Police officers across the country had often lost sight of the basics and underperformed as a result, Marsh said, speaking at the Royal Society of Arts conference. “To me, getting the basics right means delivering what the public expects … crime prevention and detection by officers and personnel who exercise the highest professional standards,” she added.

A strategic review by the Police Foundation found that detection rates have almost halved in seven years.

In the year to March 2021, only 9.3% of all recorded police offenses ended in charges or citations, compared to 17% in 2014.

“The public just doesn’t think that’s good enough. We shouldn’t either,” Marsh said.
