We have a dedicated burglary team called Operation Castle, who focus on hotspot areas and particular types of burglary. We’ve seen more than 600 years in prison handed out to suspects since we launched in 2018. Every sentence handed down makes the communities of Merseyside and beyond safer from the harm, distress and inconvenience that burglary brings.
