HOW SECURE IS YOUR TRAILER?
There are plenty of products available. Look for the “Sold Secure” mark.
INSTALL DUSK-TO-DAWN LIGHTING:
Most thieves don’t want to be seen.
INSTALL PARKING POSTS IN FRONT OF HORSEBOXES AND TRAILERS:
Block them in to make them harder to move.
FIT HITCHLOCKS AND WHEELCLAMPS:
Delay attempts to hitch to the thieves’ vehicles.
FIT AN ALARM IN CARAVANS:
130db shed alarms are available from Uttlesford Neighbourhood Watch. www.uttlesfordnhw.org.uk
REMOVE REAR LIGHT BULBS:
Police will stop unlit trailers and vehicles.
DISPLAY POSTCODE ON ROOF OF CARAVANS
Stolen units are then easy to spot from the air or from road bridges.
If you hear or see anything suspicious please call Essex Police on 101 or 999 if you believe a crime is being committed.
