Advice: Secure your vehicle!

Released on 2 July 2018

South Staffordshire council news

We are urging residents and business owners to be extra vigilant following a number of vehicle thefts and attempted breaks across the county.

We have received reports of both cars and vans being targeted.

We would remind owners to ensure their vehicles are locked and garaged wherever possible, or parked on a driveway or in well-lit areas.

Please ensure all valuables are removed when unattended - this includes tools and equipment, which are often targeted.  Leave a sign in the window advising that no valuables are left in the vehicle.

Store vehicle keys away and out of sight.  Thieves will consider breaking into your home to steal the keys and the vehicle!

If you have a keyless entry vehicle - ensure your car fob is stored away in a signal blocker pouch or container.
