What did Cressida Dick, the new commissioner of the Metropolitan Police, say about police responses to burglaries?

Speaking to Nick Robinson on BBC Radio 4, Cressida Dick said that the police had had great success in reducing burglaries.

"Burglaries in London are at an all-time low. We've done really, really well at preventing burglaries. I know it can really upset people, of course it can. I'm not saying officers won't attend [a report of a burglary], of course we will. I'm not saying we won't assess it, of course we will. But we're not going to go in for meaningless activities."
