Car Crime Rise In Poole

Following a recent increase in car crime offences in Poole, Dorset Police is encouraging drivers to make sure they take simple steps to keep their cars secure across the town.

A total of 181 car crime offences took place in Poole between Friday 15 June and Tuesday 24 July 2012. 

These were for offences of theft from a vehicle and theft of a vehicle. 

Poole Safer Neighbourhood Officer, Police Constable Suzie Corsie-Mackay, said: "We have seen a rise in car crime in recent weeks across Poole. 

"As a result, I am encouraging motorists to ensure they do not leave their cars unlocked.

"On some occasions, members of the public are leaving their cars completely unlocked allowing thieves to simply open the car door and steal whatever is inside or drive the car away. 

"Never leave valuable items unattended in your car. Remember, if you leave nothing behind there is nothing to steal."

If members of the public see a crime in progress they should dial 999 immediately and report it to the police.
