Dear all,

Dear all, could I please make you aware of the increase we are experiencing in vehicle crime. Namely theft of number plates. Could I please advise you to consider purchasing anti theft screws for number plates. These can be purchased from Halfords or Amazon and retail for about £6. This would be a worthwhile investment.
Could I also highlight that many criminals use vehicle advertising sites to target victims and clone vehicle registration plates. If you or anyone you know is selling their vehicle and advertising it on Gum tree or Auto trader, could I please advise you to obscure your registration from the advertisement, this will prevent criminals from using that number plate.

If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate in contacting the Heathrow Villages Safer Neighbourhood Team on 02087212557 or
