WATCH OUT FOR THIEVES IN CARPARKS
In the lead-up to the Christmas period, shopping centre carparks can be targeted by thieves and shoplifting incidents can be expected to increase. Police will be stepping up patrols of shopping centres and working closely with security guards as well as reviewing CCTV footage that will help identify suspects. If you're buying anything and going back and forth to and from your vehicle, be sure to put items in the boot out of vision. In these busy periods, be sure to keep handbags zipped up and purses out of sight and reach. Always be vigilant and do not leave handbags on trolleys unattended.
