If you are parking at one of the walk or beach carparks, make sure you secure your vehicle and remove all valuables. Don’t leave anything in view that might look ‘interesting’ and encourage a break-in.

As a result, our team have been conducting a number of night-time patrols in the past few months and have reported several instances of suspicious activities to Police. Our patrol has come across vehicles (and people) acting in a questionable manner, who have quickly de- parted on seeing our patrol car. This is immediately reported to Police Comms and all de- tails recorded. What we do can make a difference.
