Thefts from Insecure Vehicles

Alert message sent 11/02/2019 13:27:00

Information sent on behalf of Thames Valley Police

There have been a spate of thefts from insecure motor vehicles across the area. Did you know that your insurance premium could go up if your car or one in your road is broken into?
Follow the below tips to help prevent becoming a victim of vehicle crime:-

Display and you will pay – don’t tempt thieves, take your belongings with you.

Trust locks, not luck – lock your car doors and double check your vehicle is secure.

Keep keys safe - and out of sight.

Perfect parking – if you have a garage, use it or try to park in a well-lit location.
Be alarmed – this could deter thieves.

Sat Nav – would you be lost without it? Remove it and make sure you wipe the sucker mark off the windscreen.

Your number’s up – number plates can be easily removed, secure them with security screws. Contact police if stolen.
You can find further information and vehicle crime prevention advice on the Thames Valley Police website:-
