Many thefts are committed by opportunists.  By taking simple measures to protect your property you can prevent becoming a victim of crime.
· Anti tamper screws – Fitting these to your registration plates prevents removal.
· Car Alarms – Although they cannot physically prevent the theft of or from your vehicle they are a powerful deterrent.  Some alarms can also come with an alerting system if they are activated.
· Steering locks / gearstick & handbrake locks – Although not impenetrable it increases the time taken to steal a car.  They can also be a visual deterrent so criminals may move on to find an  easier target.
· Secure Parking - If your home has a driveway, or better still a garage, then use it. Cars parked off the road are far less likely to be stolen than those parked on the road.   If not try to park in a well-lit area.
· Hide valuables – DON’T leave items on display. Ensure any items of value are removed from the vehicle or hidden out of site.
· LOCK YOUR CAR – Always check windows / doors / sunroofs are secure before leaving your vehicle, even if you are doing so for a very short while.
