I've said it once. What don't you understand ?
I'd be grateful if the police rescued my valuables from a car I'd left unlocked

If it was just an isolated case where a police officer took matters into his own hands I don't think this would be a problem - however it states that they are "targeting unlocked cars", which is a different kettle of fish altogether. Also, these localised schemes are done to test the water before national roll-out... god help the country if you don't see why it's a bad thing that police no longer need a warrant to search your personal belongings (without probable cause).
