Vehicle Security

Alert message sent 26/05/2019 18:25:00

Information sent on behalf of Leicestershire Police

There has been an increase in the number of reported thefts from vehicles in the Oadby area recently.
Please ensure that your vehicle is locked when parked, especially at night.
Please do not leave anything on show, not only valuable items but also jackets, loose change, shopping bags etc.
If you own a van please remove tools if possible and try parking with the rear doors close to a wall so that it is difficult to open the doors.
If you have a keyless vehicle do not leave your keys anywhere near the front of the house but instead place them in a Faraday pouch, (signal blocker) and if possible take them upstairs. A steering lock device is also recommended.
Even if your car is not keyless it is recommended that keys are kept out of sight away from the front door as burglars will break in just for the keys to the vehicle on the driveway. If your house keys are on the same key ring then not only will you have to deal with the theft of your vehicle but also change the locks to your home.
There is lots of advice on the Leicestershire Police website:
Please pass this message on to your neighbours and work colleagues who might not be registered to receive these messages.

Stay safe
