Vehicle Crime leaflet

It's an unfortunate fact but thieves operate amongst us and they will try and steal your items given the chance. Most vehicle crime is opportunistic and happens as a result of a vehicle being left vulnerable or unsecured, for example:

•doors or windows left unlocked...
•keys left in the ignition
•personal belongings on display (e.g. handbag, laptop)
•sat nav and holder left in vehicle
•parked in a poorly lit areas
•vehicles being left unlocked with engines running to defrost during winter

The advice below will provide you with some tips on how you can outsmart car thieves. Following these simple steps will help us to reduce vehicle crime even further and save you the hassle and expense of having to repair any damage caused during a vehicle break-in.

We would also like to reassure residents that we are and have been patrolling the area regularly.
