ABSTRACT
This article reports on the national campaign launched by the British water industry during the week of June 13, 2008 to tackle distraction burglary. Bogus callers claim to be from a water company in half of such crimes. Companies have agreed a national protocol for staff visiting customers' homes, and will promote awareness of the bogus caller problem, supply advice and work with other agencies. Pamela Taylor, chief executive of Water UK, said the national campaign was an attempt to step up the work done by companies.
