There has recently been an increase in vehicle crime in your area. I am appealing to you all to be extra vigilant.
Please take every precaution to ensure that your property is safe.
Below are some simple steps you can take to ensure your property is safe.
Always lock and secure your motor vehicle and remove all valuable items from view
If your wing mirrors can be turned in, please take the time to do this.
Remove any signs of a Sat Nav’s or Mobile Phone Holder, such as suction marks and cradles by removing the item and marks left on your window screen.
Remove dash cam’s. please take the time to do this as this is currently a growth area in vehicle crime.
If you are going away be sure to ask somebody to keep an eye on your vehicle and where possible move the vehicle every couple of days so as not to appear as if no- one is using the vehicle
Van drivers; please remove your tools from the vehicle and ladders from the roof rack.
Never leave windows open whilst your vehicle in parked on the drive
Always lock you vehicle even when you are at home and your car is on the drive.
If you can, place car keys/fob in signal blocking box.
Never leave you vehicle with doors or windows open and the keys in the vehicle whilst you nip in to get something
Thank you for your time
