Vehicle Crime Prevention

There have recently been some vehicle breaks in the Preston area.

Accordingly we have increased patrols in the area but ask for your assistance in reporting any suspicious activity. If you see anything suspicious please report it and don’t assume that your information is already known or will be insignificant.

The Neighbourhood Policing Team is talking to residents to try and identify those responsible.

Steps to protect your vehicle;

* Do not leave anything of value in your vehicle, take all your belongings with you.

* If you have a garage, use it. If you don’t, always try to park in well-lit, open locations and ensure your vehicle is locked, alarmed and immobilised.

* Sat Navs are sought-after items, so always remember to remove yours from your vehicle, along with the cradle.

* Security mark your sat nav and all other valuables. Keep a note of makes, models and serial numbers of your sat nav, car audio equipment, mobile phone, ipod and cameras.

To report an emergency including any crimes in progress please dial 999.

To report non-emergency crime dial 101.

Kind regards,
