Theft of vehicle number plates

Recently there have been a number of thefts of vehicle number plates reported in your area.

Criminals steal number plates in order to disguise their vehicle and make it look like yours.  This can be done in order to commit crimes such as burglaries, theft of petrol or to avoid congestion charging and speed cameras etc.

PCSO Paula Boston from the Great Brickhill, Wing and Ivinghoe Neighbourhood Policing Team has obtained a supply of anti-tamper screws for securing number plates, which she is offering to local residents in the area.

These screws make it nearly impossible for them to be undone.

If you would like to fit some to your vehicle please contact PCSO Boston by emailing  greatbrickhillwingivinghoeNHPT@thamesvalley.pnn.police.uk  or by telephoning her mobile number 07800 702998 or by asking for her via the 24 hour Police Enquiry Centre number 101.

This is a free service and will be whilst stocks last.
