FOL­LOW THESE TIPS TO PRO­TECT YOUR CAR

Mt Druitt - St Mary's Standard (East) - - NEWS -

When you park and leave your car, it is a good idea to do a quick check­list. En­sure per­sonal valu­ables are stored out of sight or taken from the ve­hi­cle and doors and win­dows are locked. Thieves tar­get items such as MP3 play­ers, mo­bile phones, cash, lap­tops, GPS, CDs and CD play­ers. They usu­ally gain en­try by smash­ing a win­dow, so park in well- lit, busy streets when­ever pos­si­ble. Ad­di­tional mea­sures can be in­stalled to en­hance your car’s se­cu­rity, in­clud­ing en­gine im­mo­bilis­ers or fuel cut out switches in­stalled to your ve­hi­cle, lock­ing de­vices on the steer­ing wheel or trans­mis­sion shifts, and car alarm sys­tems. – Mt Druitt crime preven­tion of­fi­cer
