For most of us, our vehicle is the second largest purchase we make after our home, so it is important to make sure you do all you can to keep it secure.
The security features of your vehicle should be as important as any other feature or accessory.
Having your vehicle broken into or stolen can be distressing, annoying and it can cause a lot of inconvenience if you are without it while it is being repaired or replaced.
If you take the time to assess the security of your vehicle, follow the advice provided and take positive action, you will greatly reduce the risk of becoming a victim.
Who can help me?
You can contact your local Crime Prevention Officer for further advice. CPOs can provide advice to individuals and can also address larger audiences, if necessary.
Contact the police as soon as you become aware that your vehicle has been stolen, damaged or broken into. Try to touch as little as possible, in order to preserve forensic evidence.
