CCTV Footage – We know that there has been an increase on the use of CCTV at private and business properties, especially the doorbell / video type device. If you have footage of a person or vehicle acting suspiciously, especially if it may relate to any of the incidents listed above, please let us know via 101 or on email –


Theft of vehicle number plates – Vehicle number plate theft is a national problem and has increased in recent years in part due to an increase in speed cameras, a rise in petrol costs and charges to use certain roads. Offenders have looked at ways to hide the identities of their vehicles so they can engage in criminal activity whilst avoiding detection. Number plates are being stolen from vehicles of all makes, models and ages.


How to combat it – Non reversible screws have been developed to help combat this crime. The number plate screws are special one-way devices that cannot be unscrewed once fitted. Any attempt to steal the plate would require force, causing the plate to break. Therefore if the thief steals the plates, they are damaged in such a way that makes them useless for criminal purposes. Traditional number plates are fixed to vehicles using plastic bolts. If non-reversible screws are not available, it is recommended that double sided tape is used instead of plastic bolts. This makes the plate harder to remove and also may well lead to the plate breaking and therefore rendering it useless. When taking your vehicle for its next garage maintenance visit why not ask for your car number plates to be attached in this way?


Most vehicle crime is opportunistic and happens as a result of a vehicle being left vulnerable or unsecured, for example:

  • doors or windows left unlocked
  • keys left in the ignition
  • personal belongings on display (eg handbag, laptop)
  • sat nav and holder left in vehicle
  • parked in a poorly lit areas
  • during winter, vehicles being left unlocked with engines running to defrost
