The mail seems like a better idea the more i think of it.They even ALREADY PAY a govt official to go to every single house why not have the mail man check all the doors since its just to say please lock them.Why not make a small post card type thing dropped of in bulk to the post officeto distribute(that could make more then one town aware)and just have the mail man check each door and invade privacy?because they ARE "saying" that the POLICE have the right to do this.If the goal wasnt to eat up extra busget hours and find crimes to rake in revanue they wouldnt use the VERY EXPENSIVE police force. Your counrty just doesnt have anything saying theyll respect your rights. Police and Criminal Evidence Act 1984 gave the police the right to search almost anything for anything. THEN the Serious Organised Crime and Police Act 2005 Took your right to protest... i dont know how you protesting helps organised crime... I'd say fight the power but u gave urs up.

@Swarook True we have a different mentality. We don't hate our police they don`t have guns and tend to try a more community approach to policing. I got pulled over the other day was called "ma duck"(local affectionate slang)informed that my license plate was half hanging off, as a screw had come out (a crime :O ) helped to reattach it went on my way. Sheffield is one of if not the safest city in the UK. It`s mostly student areas this scheme is running. The crimes being committed are torrenting piracy if that. Even if you were doing weed at home you`re more likely to get a non recorded caution/warning than anything else. And the police will be out on foot patrol anyway, this is an ancillary tactic, which also got free media and has been advertised around target groups for the length of the scheme. It would not be cheaper to mail 550,000 who are likely not to read the junk mail

I will admit that Amureeka seems to have more stupid laws that no one know they are breaking. out govt has actually lost count of how many laws you can break. LOL at Amureeka

@Bakcagain21 No one said that this was an example of the cops "SAYING" they can walk in when ever they want. This *IS* the cops walking in when they want. Its not your fault you were raised to not see these things as invasions so i will assist. The idea that people should be reminded to lock their doors is good, the way is was implemented is not. to just make a town aware it would be cheaper to mail them all warnings not spend police hours benifits and equipment. What they wanted was to be inside homes to get a lay of the land to see what crimes are being commited quietly.Sure you may think if you dont commit crime no worries but please remember that everyone has commited crimes even some that are unknowable How many of these were you aware of? .I agree Lock your d
