Vehicle Crime

Vehicle crime is one of the priorities for West Midlands Police, please help us prevent crime by taking the following measures:

> Don’t leave any valuables in your car – even if you know the bag on the front seat is empty, a thief may still try their luck, leaving you with a broken window to deal with
> Remove your Sat Nav and its holder from the car – don’t leave it in the glove box as that’s the first place a thief will look – and make sure you wipe away any suction marks
> Remove all valuables
> It may sound obvious, but remember to shut your windows and sunroof when you leave your car
> Where possible park vehicle in a garage or private drive. When away from home park in a Safer Parking Scheme car park http://www.parkmark.co.uk
> Catalytic converters and number plates are being targeted by thieves. Cats can be permanently etched as a means of identification and secured with special fixings, plates can be fixed with anti tamper screws http://www.securedbydesign.com

If you see anything suspicious please dial 101 or 999 in an emergency. Thank you for your continued support

REMINDER: Free push bike marking & car registration plate security at Halfords (Maypole) on Sat 25th May 9-11am. Secure YOUR property
