Reducing theft of and from motor vehicles is a borough-wide priority for Croydon.
Residents can take simple measures to help.
- Don’t leave any items or valuables in vehicles. There have been reports of vehicles being broken into for small change left on display.
- Ensure that vehicles are locked!
- Don’t leave keys in vehicles, or leave vehicles idling unattended, to defrost the windscreen or when stopping briefly for collection/pickups.
If you see anyone suspiciously, call police on 101.
