Monthly Police Newsletter Vehicle Crime and Scams (Leicestershire Police)


We hope you have a happy New Year. Please see attached your monthly Police Newsletter.

Please take a minute to consider the security of your vehicle and pass the message onto friends, family and neighbours.

There have been several incidents of keyless vehicle crime and residential burglary related to keyless car crime recently in the Hinckley and Blaby area. Areas affected over recent weeks include Cosby, Earl Shilton and Stoney Stanton.

Please be vigilant if you have a keyless vehicle or a high powered vehicle at your property.
Lots can be done to reduce the risk of criminals targeting your vehicle such as steering locks, driveway bollards, blocking your car in and RFID wallets. PLEASE do not leave car keys in your vehicle and unoccupied whilst clearing windows with the icy mornings here.

Please remember to call 999 (emergency) or 101 (non-emergency) immediately if you see anything suspicious. These incidents usually happen with another high powered vehicle in convoy, so if you manage to get registration details, please pass them onto us.

Please also be aware of online and door to door scams. I have also attached the Trading Standards Christmas newsletter which has lots of good information that may help you.  

Thank you for your time and take care,
