Included inside the packs is a Neighbourhood Watch form, a booklet about burglaries in Warwickshire, and information on SmartWater, a forensic marking system.

There is also general crime prevention information, and a home security self-assessment.

All the estate agents in Stratford have signed up for the scheme, so police are now going to roll it out for the whole of Warwickshire, handing out approximately 2,000 packs in the first run.
