Theft from motor vehicles,
Please ensure you never leave anything of value in your vehicles. It can take as little as 10 seconds for a thief to steal something from your car. If at all possible, leave nothing on view.
NEVER leave valuable items in your car, including sunglasses, the removable radio cover and your Sat Nav. Do you really need all those things you keep in the glove box?
Wipe away the Sat Nav mark on your windscreen.
Always: Close the windows and sunroof; lock the doors and activate any security devices when leaving your car unattended.
Never: Leave cash, credit cards, chequebook, mobile phones, vehicle documents or other valuables in the car.
