Love Your Vehicle
Our cars are often among the most expensive purchases we make (after our houses) - which can make them a tempting target for criminals, especially if we leave other valuables on show inside. Fortunately vehicle crime is not especially common in West Mercia, but there are plenty of ways to make it even less common.
- Don't make it easy for criminals, visit our Advice Centre vehicle security pages and show some love to your car, van or bicycle.
Love Your Neighbour
Doorstep crime can take a number of forms but is carried out by criminals who deliberately target the most vulnerable members of our communities. However, research shows that neighbourhoods with active communities are targeted much less often by distraction burglars and rogue tradespeople. So, keep an eye out for any vulnerable members of your community and pass on details of any suspicious vehicles or activity in the area.
