What Thieves See

Wednesday, December 12, 2012

Thieves are constantly looking for crimes of opportunity — the easier we make it for them, the more likely we become a target. This series of four posters is intended to illustrate how thieves view electronic items such as smartphones, music players, and other high-value devices when we use them publicly.

The campaign was originated by the Metropolitan Police Service (London, UK) and is recreated with permission.
