Vehicle Crime

Thames Valley Alert - crime prevention- vehicle crime

Subject: Is your vehicle safe and secure?

Most vehicle crime is preventable. The best way to protect your

belongings is to lock your car whenever you leave it. Other things

you can do include:

• Removing everything from the car; don't even leave a jacket where

it can be seen

• Closing the sunroof along with the windows when you leave

• Not storing things in the boot; take them with you

• Taking removable stereos and sat nav equipment with you

• Where you park can make a big difference to the safety of your car

and your belongings. Look out for car parks approved by the police

Safer Parking <link> scheme. You can find them by looking for their

distinctive 'Park Mark' signs

• Having a routine to ensure you always take the keys out of the


• Keeping your keys away from doors and windows, and tucked

away out of sight. Thieves sometimes break into houses looking for

car keys. They can also use wires and hooks 'to try and drag' your

keys through the letterbox

• Storing car ownership information in your home, not your car

• Using secure (theft resistant) number plates can make your plates

less attractive to thieve

• Have your vehicle's windows etched with its registration number or

the last seven digits of the vehicle identification number (VIN). This

can put criminals off, as it makes your car more difficult to sell. It also

makes it easier for police to get your car back to you if it is stolen
