“Once the cold season starts and night falls early, burglaries are on the rise. Therefore, the police will take action against this type of crime in autumn and winter 2016 and 2017, too. Specific analysis methods and swift search and investigative measures combined with more prevention are to be adopted to counter this type of crime. Direct contact to police officers lies at the heart of these measures.”

The railway stations are often places with high concentration of passengers and therefore offer many possibilities for pickpocketing. The pickpockets usually apply short distraction to their victims by asking a question or just bumping. Sometimes they get on train at the same time as the victim who later discovers missing money or other valuables.
