Vehicle crime prevention message

Alert message sent 18/03/2019 13:10:00

Information sent on behalf of West Mids Police

Dear Resident

 Below are some crime prevention tips to help prevent yourself becoming a victim of vehicle crime.

Never leave your vehicle insecure or leave valuable items in your vehicle.

 Please ensure where possible decent lighting and high quality CCTV equipment are installed on your property and that it is placed high enough that it cannot be tampered with.

 Installing a steering wheel lock, driveway parking post and/or a wheel clamp are great deterrents to car thieves. Please ensure that the keys to the steering wheel lock are kept separate to your car keys. 

 If your vehicle has keyless entry and you are concerned regarding the security of this feature then investigate whether it is possible to switch your car key's signal off. Check your manual to find out if your key has this function or ask your dealer if the system can be disabled.

 As an added protection against keyless theft you can also purchase a signal blocking pouch or tin, and install a tracking device to your vehicle to aid in the recovery should your vehicle be stolen.

 Your local Neighbourhood Policing Team will be conducting high visibility patrols of your area. Should you see anything that you deem to be suspicious then please either call 101 in a non emergency or report it via our online system at www.west-midlands.police.uk. In an emergency always call 999.
