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
> 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

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
