Number plate theft is a big problem – rates have more than doubled in the last five years and there were at least 40,000 cases last year. Thefts from cars are significantly under-reported.
On Monday you can stop thieves in their tracks! By making a simple change to tamper proof screws for your number plate; you can reduce the risk of number plate theft. What will it cost? Nothing!
Your Safer Neighbourhood Team in conjunction with Russell Automotive Centre & Garage Express are holding an event where the tamper proof screws will be fitted for FREE.
You can turn up on the day or after and the correct screws will be fitted depending on the make and model of the car. Neighbourhood officers will also be available to offer other crime prevention advice. No appointment is necessary.
Number plate thefts continue to be a problem nationally and have increased in recent years. This is partly due to an increase in the use of speed cameras, rise in petrol costs and charges for use of certain roads.
We are really pleased to receive the support of Russell Automotive Centre & Garage Express to help us reduce crime in this area.
