Check Your Vehicle Security

Alert message sent 18/02/2019 14:46:00

Information sent on behalf of West Mids Police

Dear Citizen

Help us reduce vehicle crime in Walsall by ensuring that you check your vehicle security every time you leave it.  Ensuring that no items are left on show - including items of no, or little value such as bags or coats - will reduce your chances of becoming a victim.

Particularly if your vehicle has keyless entry, think about improving it's security by adding extra security devices such as an alarm or tracker.  Over the weekend a number of cars with keyless entry have been reported stolen, with Ford Fiestas appearing to be particularly vulnerable.  One of the most effective ways to stop someone stealing your vehicle (keyless or not) is to use a wheel lock. That way even if thieves manage to open your car door they won’t be able to drive your vehicle away.

You can buy a steering wheel lock from a number of places, but we’ve partnered with Disklok, who are offering a 15 per cent discount on their products exclusively to drivers in the West Midlands Police area.

Ordering is simple – just log onto www.disklokuk.co.uk and enter the code wmnowdsk15 at the checkout.

Be vigilant - if you see anything suspicious report it to the police immediately.  You can 
contact us via Live Chat at west-midlands.police.uk between 8am to midnight, call 101 anytime or contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.  Call 999 if you believe a crime is in progress.
