RISKSA Magazine - - SHORT-TERM -

Park smartly: Avoid dark or iso­lated park­ing ar­eas. If park­ing on a street, en­sure that the area is well lit and prefer­ably guarded. Keep valu­ables safe: En­sure that all valu­ables in­clud­ing a GPS de­vice and ra­dio faces are not in sight. Avoid stor­ing items in the cen­tre con­sole or glove com­part­ment. Do not keep car reg­is­tra­tion or car own­er­ship documents in the car. Lock up: The more anti- theft pro­tec­tion de­vices in a car, the less chance a thief will have to get away with it. Pick up the phone: Re­mind clients to phone the po­lice im­me­di­ately for as­sis­tance in the event of a ve­hi­cle theft or break- in and re­port the crime. If they have a track­ing de­vice, they should call the track­ing com­pany im­me­di­ately to re­port the theft.
