DON’T LEAVE VALUABLES IN THE CAR
AS an individual, where you can make it tougher for crooks is to not leave valuables in your car. I have heard of crooks saying they come into our affluent suburbs to steal from cars because they believe it is rich pickings. The truth is it doesn't matter what suburb they target as people constantly leave valuables inside their cars. Laptops, mobile phones, handbags and wallets are the popular items to be stolen. Waking up the next morning to discover a smashed car window, your purse or wallet stolen and half a dozen fraudulent transactions from your back account will certainly wreck your day. The problem lately is not from public carparks, but from the front of people’s homes. My message is when you get home, take a moment and make sure you haven't left anything behind in the car. – Senior Sergeant Gavin Radice
