Herts Police would like to remind motorists to take the following steps when protecting their vehicle:
- It might sound obvious, but make sure you lock the doors and shut the windows and sunroof whenever you leave your vehicle unattended.
- Always take the keys out of the ignition even if you’re just stopping to buy a newspaper, paying for fuel, or popping back into your home to get something.
- Be aware of your keys. Don’t leave them lying around, visible or in pockets in changing rooms where they could be taken. Don’t leave them visible on a window sill in your home or near to the front door, where they could be “hooked” through the letterbox.
- Never leave any valuables in your vehicle – not even in the glovebox or boot – and keep ALL other possessions out of sight. Even if you know that there is nothing valuable in your coat pocket or bag left on the back seat, a thief may try their luck.
- Remove your sat nav and its holder and wipe away any suction marks as these could suggest to a potential thief that a sat nav is stored in your vehicle.
- Never leave vehicle documents in your car – don’t make it easy for a thief to sell your car or provide a cover story if stopped by the police.
- Register your stereo, laptop, sat nav and any other property on the free online property database immobilise.com. It only takes a few minutes and could help police trace your property if it’s lost or stolen.
