Please remember to take any items of value from your vehicle when not in use. Today I have examined all 'Theft from Motor Vehicle' offences in the Selly Oak area, from 1st January-18th April. From a total of 55 incidents, 40 involved items being taken that should not have been left unattended. The most stolen items include Sat Navs, Dash Cams and loose change. Please bear this in mind next time you lock your car - by taking some small preventative steps, you can help us to drastically reduce the number of vehicle crime incidents.

Selly Oak NHT will continue our work around vehicle crime - this includes targeted patrols, visits to known offenders and educating residents. Whilst on foot patrol this week, I have noted the registrations of vehicles with valuables left on display and will be contacting the owners individually with crime prevention advice. Please let me know if there are any other actions you would like to see implemented by replying directly to this message.
