Neighbourhood Watch

Thefts from insecure vehicles have recently seen an increase in this area. There are some simple steps you can take to make yourself less likely to be a victim.

Lock doors and close windows

A vehicle left unlocked or with windows open is an invitation to a thief and some criminals will simply keep checking vehicles until they find one unlocked, so don’t leave your vehicle insecure, physically check that your doors and windows are locked.

Remove all items from the vehicle

Most criminals are opportunists – they take what they can, when they see it. If a vehicle looks empty, the chances are they may leave it alone.

Don’t make life easy for criminals by leaving any items on display. Either take your property with you when you get out of the vehicle or keep items locked in the boot out of sight. Even things like an old coat, sunglasses or loose change can be a temptation for someone to ‘smash and grab’ – they steal first and think about value later.

To help to prevent other thefts and to ensure that your car is not an appealing target for a thief, we are asking you to be extra vigilant and consider your vehicle security.

  • Look out for your neighbours when they are not home. If you see anything suspicious report it to the police and inform your neighbour.
  • Ensure your car is always left locked and secure.
  • Do not leave possessions in your car, whether valuable or not. A thief wouldn’t know the bag left on the back seat only contains a gym kit for example.
  • If you have a portable Sat Nav remove it when not in use and also remove the cradle and wipe off any sucker marks as they are an indicator that the Sat Nav itself may still be in the car. A criminal will happily smash a window to check!
  • Register your Sat Nav and any other electrical items on Immobilise, the UK National Property Register, free of charge at immobilise.com
  • Leave your empty glove box and centre console open so that it can be seen that there is nothing to steal.
  • If you have a garage – use it! Always lock the garage and the vehicle. If you don’t have a garage always try to park in a well-lit open place in public view.
  • If possible use secure car parks displaying the Park MarkTM For details on the Park MarkTM scheme go on line to www.parkmark.co.uk
