Car Key Burglary

Criminals now look to steal keys rather than force the ignition; often by accessing keys left in sight through letterboxes or by breaking in through insecure doors or windows.

Car key burglary has increased in recent years as high value cars have improved security systems.

It is important to take extra care to reduce the risk of becoming a victim by:

  • Keeping all keys out of sight and away from doors and windows.
  • Keeping doors and windows locked even you are at home.
  • Installing a home security system and setting the intruder alarm at night.
  • Using European standard TS007 anti-snap locks on UPVC doors.
  • Installing and activating a tracking device on your vehicle.
