Neighbourhood Watch knows where lots of CCTV cameras are. If you tell them quickly enough (i.e. don’t leave it for days) then they can check the recordings and help the police to nail the villains.
Make sure you tell the police first. As so often happens, someone has just reported a burglary to NHW but it happened at the start of the month, which could mean that the recordings have already been overwritten.
Some residents don’t even bother to report car break-ins to NHW, yet these often reveal leads to bigger crimes in the area.
