CAR CRIME CLIMBS

The Tribune (NZ) - - CONVERSATIONS -

Po­lice are telling us that the num­ber of thefts from cars in Palmer­ston North is un­ac­cept­ably high. The ma­jor­ity of these are oc­cur­ring around the CBD.

If you are go­ing to be park­ing and leav­ing your car, please en­sure you take your valu­ables with you. If that is not pos­si­ble make sure they are hid­den from sight prior to leav­ing home or wher­ever you have driven from.

If your car is fit­ted with an alarm, ac­ti­vate it. Be aware of peo­ple just sit­ting in parked cars in public park­ing ar­eas. If you are con­cerned about any­one who looks sus­pi­cious, who is walk­ing around parked cars or sit­ting in a parked car for no ap­par­ent rea­son, take down the de­tails and call the po­lice. Help keep your stuff safe. Watch, think, act.

Us­ing your car seat as a shelf for your valu­ables is an in­vi­ta­tion to thieves.
