Recently we have seen an increase in reports of theft from vehicles in the Selsey area. Several of these vehicles had been left unlocked.
 
Remember:
Don't leave anything in your car - if it's not there, then it can't be stolen.
Thieves aren't picky, so don't leave even low-value items in your car including loose change.
Always ensure your vehicle is locked when you leave it.
Often thieves will smash and grab first and look later to see if what they've stolen is valuable.
Former car thieves say it takes less than 20 seconds to search your vehicle.
Don't hide it - if you hide items under the seat or in the glove box, chances are someone will have watched you.
If you have something of value, don’t leave it in the car, take it with you.
 
Please be assured that we are continuing with increased patrols in the area. We would urge members of the public who witness any suspicious activity to contact us straight away.
If you have any information that could assist us with our enquiries then please contact us on 101 or online.

We have also seen an increase in reports of burglaries to sheds, garages and outbuildings across Chichester.
Some of the properties targeted had been left unlocked. It can take seconds for a thief to steal your belongings so we would like to remind everyone to ensure that you leave your property secure when unattended or not in use.
Valuables stolen include bikes, sports and fishing equipment and power tools.
 
Keep it locked.
Install security lights
Install an alarm
Install CCTV.
If you already have CCTV, ensure it is in good working order.
 
Please be assured that our teams are continuing with patrols and following up all enquiries.
We would ask you to report any suspicious behaviour to us straight away. If you can assist us with any information then please contact us on 101 or online.
