Dear Residents

Between 11/01/2013 and 12/01/2013 a vehicle was left unlocked on a driveway on Kennedy Drive Stapleford and was entered and a number of items removed. If you may have seen anything please can you contact myself.

Nottinghamshire Police are taking action to reduce vehicle crime even more, and you can help:

Don’t leave items on display, remove valuables and wipe away sat nav marks
Always lock your vehicle, and don’t forget the boot and windows
When you’re out and about, always try and park in a secure attended car park, or use one that’s been awarded the Park Mark® status by the British Car Park Association. Find out more at
·        When parking at home, use your garage if you have one and lock garden gates. If you park on the street, try to leave your car in a well-lit area or near a CCTV camera don’t leave you car unlocked just because it’s on your drive!
