Quick & Easy Ways to Reduce Your Chances of Being A Victim

Vehicles - Keep your car locked and remove all valuable property from your car, including any bags and coats. Pull your car handle to CHECK it’s locked. Thieves will break into cars for bags and coats, due to the possibility they may contain valuables. Thieves will search unlocked vehicles for ANYTHING - including, chargers, loose coins, sunglasses and keys.

Homes – Keep your doors locked and valuable property away from windows. Keep handbags away from the front door. Don’t leave keys, near the front door or in reach of the letterbox. Don’t leave windows open when you go out - even tiny windows can be used, to hook open another window. Install lighting which can be triggered by movement sensors. Consider a doorbell camera / CCTV.

Garages / Sheds – Fit strong locks and hardware to doors. Keep them locked and the valuable property inside secured to a fixed point. Install lighting which can be triggered by movement sensors.

Mopeds and Motorbikes – Please put your bike out of sight, if this is not possible, secure it with a thick chain and padlock to something solid.

Could you tell the Police, the makes / models / serial nos of
your possessions, if they were stolen? Have you photographed your possessions without serial nos? Log them all at – www.immobilise.com

Kind Regards, PCSO 12948 Mica Woodcock.
