Increase In Theft of Number Plates

There has been a recent increase in the theft of number plates. Please see the following crime prevention tips:

Make sure your car is always parked securely in a well-lit area.

You can purchase anti-tamper screws that will secure them to your car. These work the same way as locking wheel nuts and can only be removed with a locking tool.

You can also purchase theft resistant number plates that are designed so they cannot be removed from your vehicle in less than 3 minutes. If they are removed they are designed to snap into several pieces so it is impossible to re-fit to another vehicle.

If you believe that your number plates have been stolen then please contact us on our non-emergency number 101 or please use our live chat facility.

It is important that you take the time to report this theft to us as the number plates could be used on another car.
