Avon and Somerset sent an officer to just 25 per cent of break-ins, according to figures obtained under Freedom of Information laws. 

This contrasted with South Yorkshire Police, which visited 96 per cent of burglary victims, the Telegraph found.

South Yorkshire Police was led by Chief Constable Stephen Watson until he joined Greater Manchester Police (GMP) last year and immediately vowed the force would also begin sending officers to all burglaries.   

Since the policy was introduced, arrests have soared by 61 per cent and the number of crimes solved are up by 21 per cent, according to the results of a government pilot.

Two forces, Avon and Somerset and Northumbria, sent an officer to just 25 per cent and 26.3 per cent of burgled homes respectively
