We have also seen via CCTV that offenders are also ‘checking’ doors of vehicles parked on driveways which are easily accessible from the pavement/roadway.

Always lock you vehicle and take that extra second to check that it is actually locked. Never leave valuable items in the vehicle such as wallets and hand bags containing bank cards which can easily be used via the tap and pay method.

If you see someone tampering with your car please report it at the time so that the Police can attend and investigate and check out persons in the area etc.
