Bedford and Kempston - Theft From Motor Vehicle

Alert message sent 20/10/2020 09:06:00

Information sent on behalf of Bedfordshire Police

Good morning all,

There has been a recent rise in reports of Theft From Motor Vehicle in the Bedford & Kempston areas. There is a few tips to try and prevent this from occurring the best you can.
  • Always remove any valuables from display in your vehicle.
  • Look into getting CCTV such as Ring doorbells or dash cams for your car which detect movement (also be mindful these can be a target too so try and make it more discreet if you can)
  • Secure your number plates by replacing the original screws with clutch-head screws.
  • Make sure any valuables that are left in the car are property marked with UV pens, include on this your postcode and house number, this means if your item is ever stolen and the police seize it we know where to return it too.
  • Always lock your doors, remember the majority of these crimes are opportunistic, don't give them a chance.
Kind Regards,
