Information sent on behalf of West Mids Police

Dear Citizen


It’s not just the British weather that could ruin your summer but you can take a few simple steps to help reduce your chances of becoming a victim of crime!

Being a victim of theft causes a great deal of inconvenience and upset for victims who may lose bank cards, mobile phones and irreplaceable items such as family photographs.

Never leave your mobile phone in plain sight on a bar or restaurant table if it’s within your reach it’s also within reach of a thief.

Don’t hang your handbag on the back of a chair, out of your sight, under a table or leave it unattended. Keep valuables especially jewellery, cash and gadgets out of sight. Put jewellery chains under clothing and mobile phones away when not in use
Report loss of bank cards to the bank immediately. Beat the pick-pockets never put valuables in back pockets.

Use the cash machine inside a bank or building society if possible and alert bank staff to any suspicious activity.

Register your valuables on the FREE national property registration database www.immobilise.com

In the meantime, please remain vigilant and report anything you think is suspicious to us.
