Vehicle crime

Alert message sent 11/03/2019 07:57:00

Information sent on behalf of Hampshire Constabulary

Good morning,

Please be aware that we have had multiple reports of vehicle crime from Saturday night into Sunday morning (9th-10th).

Some of these have been done by smashing windows and although I appreciate it is difficult to avoid this, please be reminded of the following:
  • Park your car in an attended car park where possible.
  • When parking at home, use your garage. If you don't have a garage, park in a well-lit area.
  • Don't leave anything on display in your vehicle.
  • Take all your personal possessions with you.
  • Remove sat nav holders and visible sat nav ring marks from windscreens.
  • Leave the glove box open to show there's nothing inside.
  • Fit an alarm or immobiliser to your car.
  • Record the details of your property on the Immobilise website (see right).
  • Do not store your car's documents in the car.
  • Secure your wheels using locking wheel nuts.
  • More information about alarms can be found on the Thatcham and Sold Secure websites.
If you have any further information on these incidents please contact 101 and let us know.

Many thanks,
PCSO C.Norris
