Theft of and from Vehicles

Local Policing Team Van Side To reduce the risk of theft, there are a number of steps which can be taken:

  • Remind employees of basic crime reduction tips: always lock vehicles; don't leave items on view; use a steering and handbrake lock; etch your registration on all windows and headlamps.
  • If you provide a company car park, look at improving security on the site for example removing large shrubs from the site, installing good lighting and CCTV.
  • If you provide company cars, it may be worth investing in security devices such as engine immobiliser's. You may also consider looking into which cars are least likely to be targeted by car thieves.
  • Ask employees to look out for each other - if they keep an eye on each others' cars it can help deter potential thefts.
