Please consider a good steering lock for your vehicles, and check that your vehicle is locked before you walk away from it.

Please consider anti-snap locks to all outside doors. Look for at least 3 stars and the Kitemark when purchasing them. Lock ladders away securely.

Pickpockets and purse dippers are active in the town centre. Always make sure handbags are zipped up, never leave your handbag or purse unattended on a shopping trolley, pushchair or wheelchair. Always be aware of your surroundings and the people around you when withdrawing cash. A simple tactic against this type of crime is to attach small bells to your purse so that they jingle when purses are being moved.

Tamper proof screws for number plates are a good idea to protect number plates from being stolen.

If you use a bike to get out and about think about the lock that you secure it with. A D lock is one such lock. Simple chains can be cut through in seconds.

Please consider a good quality lock for your bike. A d lock is one such type of lock.
