PLEASE LOOK AT THE CRIMES LISTED BELOW. CARS ENTERED BY UNKNOWN MEANS ARE THE ONLY CRIMES I HAVE TO REPORT
These are needless crimes, needless victims.
Please, it makes sense to lock your cars when you park them up at night, even if they are on driveways, or behind gates.
Secondly - nothing should be left on display in cars parked up - particularly golf clubs. Some people put their clubs in their cars the night before for an early getaway in the morning. Please do not do that. We have opportunist thieves out in the early hours, walking along roads simply trying car door handles. If a car has been left unlocked, they will climb in and carry out a search. They will take anything - loose change left in the car for parking meters, sunglasses, sat navs, iPods you name it, if it is small and portable.
IF YOU LOCK YOUR CAR AND LEAVE NOTHING ON DISPLAY, IT IS VERY UNLIKELY YOU WILL BE A VICTIM OF CRIME !
Keyless cars have a particular issue - the wing mirrors only retract when the car is locked - so walking along parked cars, an unlocked keyless car really stands out.
Cars left unlocked with easy pickings inside, act as a ‘crime attractor’. Words quickly spreads amongst opportunist encouraging more to arrive.
While looking at cars, they will also look at houses.
