Alert message sent 25/08/2020 16:52:00

Information sent on behalf of Bedfordshire Police

Good afternoon,

As a member of you local Community Policing Team I would like to make you aware, that we have seen a recent rise in vehicle crime within the Sandy area. Due to these events I would like to take this opportunity to ensure that you are all securing your vehicle's correctly.

  • Ensure your vehicle is locked and all windows / sunroofs are closed correctly.
  • Don’t leave things on show in your car, whether it’s an expensive laptop or just some loose change. Even items of clothing can attract possible offenders, as they may think that there will be money in the pockets
  • Don’t leave valuables in the glove-box of your car. To help in proving to would-be thieves that it’s empty, you can empty your glove-box and leave it open when you leave your vehicle
  • Park your vehicle in a well-lit spot that is visible to other members of the public, or covered by CCTV
  • At home, don’t keep your car keys next to your front door or in an obvious place
  • Keep motorcycles in a locked garage or shed, or failing that, chained securely to an immovable object.
Please report all crimes on 101 so accurate logs are created by Bedfordshire Police. 101 is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. You may also wish to use our new online reporting tool https://www.bedfordshire.police.uk.report/Report
