Over the last couple of months some residents in Oxford City have been victims of vehicle registration plate theft.
Thames Valley Police has a supply of anti theft screws which can be used as a deterrent to this type of crime.
All the time there is new equipment out to try and deter the number plate theives.
To fit these screws it is first necessary to remove just one of the existing screws on front and rear number plates and replace them with the anti theft device using a conventional screw driver. It is recommended that the new screw head is left uncovered so that it is obvious to a potential thief that the device is fitted.
This is just another step to try and prevent crime, and to make to public feel more secure about going out to their vehicle in the morning and not having to worry about your number plates being stolen!!
