Coronavirus (COVID-19): the policing response and what you need to know

Theft from Motor Vehicle (Updated)

We want to take the opportunity to remind everyone of some necessary steps of ensuring you secure your personal belongings.

  • Don’t leave bag’s, coats or change on display.
  • Leaving the glove box open with nothing inside, will show there is nothing of value.
  • If you can’t carry everything, lock it in the boot.
  • Lock doors and close windows, even for a short period but please not with any pet’s inside on warm days.

Often the repairs to broken car windows are more than the value of stolen items.

Report it by calling tel:101 or fill in our online Report a crime or incident form.

In an emergency call 999
