REMOVE ALL ITEMS OF VALUE FROM YOUR CAR
POLICE are working extremely hard to reduce stealing from motor vehicle offences but unfortunately vehicles parked anywhere at any time can be targeted, which makes apprehending those responsible quite challenging. Remove all items of value while ensuring doors are locked when the vehicle is unattended as reports indicate handbags, laptops, wallets and mobile phones are still being left in vehicles in plain sight which is very tempting for would be thieves. If you are unfortunate enough to have your vehicle broken in to make sure you report it to Police on 131444 ASAP as this ensures the appropriate actions are made in attempt to catch those responsible. - Senior Sergeant Peter Arancini
