Although the non-investigation of burglaries may be true of the Metropolitan Police, this is not necessarily the policy of the entire service as implied by your article (16 January, Insurance Times).

My husband is working on a special "crime car" in Leicestershire that deals solely with investigations into burglaries.

Every effort is being made to investigate and solve these burglaries, and bring the persons responsible before the courts.
