Police Mark Phones.
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."  
Mobiles
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 to see the leaflet.
Fun with your phone!
