Please remove valuables from your vehicle - Aylesbury Vale

Alert message sent 17/03/2017 12:50:00

Information sent on behalf of Thames Valley Police

Please don’t leave property in your vehicle – Aylesbury Vale

Thames Valley Police is asking residents and tradesmen to help prevent vehicle crime in Aylesbury Vale. Please take a moment to consider the following advice:-
  • When you park up your car make sure you remove any valuables from it. Don’t try and hide property in glove boxes, boots or under seats etc as criminals know all the places to look.
  • Make sure that your vehicle is locked and the alarm is set if you have one. 
  • Park in a well-lit area if you can. Park in your garage if this is an option. 
  • If you need to leave tools in your vehicle consider installing a van security box or tool vault.  
  • Try to park your van against something that prevents access to the back of the vehicle. 
  • Make sure anyone acting suspiciously around parked vehicles is reported immediately to the police. Try to get a description of them and details of any vehicle they may be using. If they are on foot or on a bike try to see what direction they are going in. 
  • Don’t leave it to someone else to make the call – you may be the only witness. Call on the 24 hour Police Enquiry Centre number 101, or if you think a crime is actually happening at that time dial on 999.
Property left in vehicles can tempt an opportunist thief to break into a parked car or van. Don’t make life easy for criminals and make sure they are not able to steal from your vehicle.

Further crime prevention advice and information can be found on the Thames Valley Police website.

If you have any information about vehicle crime you can contact your local Neighbourhood Policing Team on 101.

If you don’t want to talk to the police or give your details you can contact the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111, or report it online. No personal details will be taken, information is not traced or recorded and you will not go to court.
