Police Advise: Please Lock Up Your Vehicles!


Lock vehicles - Set alarm - Never leave anything on display

Bedfordshire Police are asking residents to ensure they lock vehicles after recent thefts where vans in particular were targeted.

Thieves broke into vans to steal power tools, sat nav's, parts and even loose change leaving vehicle damage in the process.

Replacing lost mobiles and bank cards is a real nuisance and can be avoided by emptying contents from your vehicles.

Here are some top tips:

use a steering wheel lock, alarm or both!
leave a sign that says no tools are left inside your van.
use strong boxes that fit in the back of your boot for loose tools/items that can easily and quickly be removed.
check insurance details - home contents policies sometimes do not cover sat nav systems as classed as vehicle accessorries.
mark your property and register it on http://www.immobilise.com 
If you have information regarding a vehicle crime, contact Bedfordshire Police on 101 or call Crimestoppers
