- Merseyside Police are
combating the problem of mobile phone thefts by going into
schools and offering a free marking service.
- The increasing need to be in
contact and also the increasing fashion trend to have a
mobile phone, is producing a new and thriving black market.
Now all phones of people taken into custody will now be
checked as standard policy by the police in an attempt to
combat this problem. Sergeant Eddy Myers explained to us
"Our side of Sefton is not as high for mobile phone
thefts as some parts. We need to note however
that the overall thefts are increasing nationally.
Outside this area there is an even greater risk of having your
phone stolen! This
increase affects us no matter where we live, putting the
insurance on our phones. We are showing pupils in
schools across the area how to access their IMEI code and also
marking their phones for FREE. Anyone can come into
Ainsdale and Birkdale station to get their phones marked and
we will give them a leaflets on Mobile Phone Security."
- This is how you can get your
phone marked, go into your local Police Station and ask
for them to mark your phone. At present it is for FREE.
Or just use a UV marker on your phone noting your post
code and house number on the inside of the battery case. The
police recommend you should note your phones IMEI by
typing in *#06#. This is a code that is given to your handset
and identifies the real owner of the set. If you keep a
note of it and the phone is stolen, the phone can be traced
back to you quicker if found by the police. Click
