Avoid, avoid, avoid
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.
