Vehicle Crime – Here are a few crime prevention tips to deter vehicle crime.
- Always lock your vehicle. Whether it’s in the garage, on the driveway of your house, unattended for a few seconds or in an isolated car park, lock it and activate any alarm system.
- Always remove valuable items from the vehicle. If this cannot be done the items must be removed from view and secured in a glove box or boot.
- Fit an alarm that will activate on movement in the vehicle. An alarm that can notify you in real time that there is a problem is extremely useful.
- Items such as tools and machinery that cannot be removed can be secured in lockers and security marked with high visibility paint etc.
- If available, park your vehicle in a location that is covered by CCTV, overlooked by houses or is in constant use.
- Use anti-theft screws and sticky pads for number plates. If you have a plate that is stolen, replace it with one that has a different design so it is distinguishable from the stolen plate.
- If you see or hear any suspicious activity around a car or car park, ring 101 to report straight away.

Accidently dialling the emergency operator – Depending on the make of your phone or the Apps installed, there can be several ways to contact the emergency services without actually dialling the emergency number. Please make yourselves aware of these short cuts without accidently triggering them. If you do and it connects with an operator, do not end the call, stay on the line, and explain to the operator what has happened and that no help is required.
Scrap Collections – We often hear that items have been taken from businesses, gardens or near to houses by possible scrap collectors. If this is the case they are most probably unlicensed and are driving around the area in the hope to collect as much scrap and other items they can before returning home. They can of course be useful for anyone trying to get rid of scrap but unfortunately it gives the unlicensed operators the excuse and opportunity to go onto peoples land. We encourage members of the public to use only reputable licenced collectors, by arranging a collection with them in advance. We have several operators on the area who can be found on social media. https://www.gov.uk/scrap-metal-dealer-registration
