Regarding statistics, Vehicle Crime in Nottingham is on the rise. Now, Nottingham is viewed as one of the major hotspots for theft and organised crime.
What has been noted, though, is that these crime figures do not include all types of crime in the UK. This includes crimes committed against the public, such as burglary, car and van theft and vandalism.
Vehicle crime being reported to the police in Nottingham is rising due to the increased number of cars on the roads and the fact that many vehicles are now more vulnerable to relay attacks. However, an increasing number of motorists are taking measures to protect their vehicles from such attacks, one of the most popular being Autowatch Ghost.
Vehicle Crime in Nottingham is one of the biggest concerns for Nottinghamshire police, see Operation Reacher. Unfortunately, this is also a significant concern for those who own highly prized vehicles that are likely to be stolen.
If you have a vehicle and are worried about crime in your area, you should consider taking some preventive measures to protect your assets. For example, consider installing extra security, such as Autowatch Ghost and Keyless Protectors, which will significantly reduce the risk of relay attacks. If you want to learn more about Autowatch Ghost or Relay attacks, check out these blogs we have written previously.
Other ways of preventing Vehicle Crime are to be aware of the locations where you park your vehicle and potentially install GPS tracking in them. The best solution against car or van theft is to keep the vehicle in a secure location. Relay attacks can happen in a matter of moments and not everywhere has secure parking, so it’s unfeasible to have a safe parking spot. By keeping up to date with the latest statistics and trends in your area, you can help to prevent crime and protect yourself and your assets.

Crime trends are not always predictable, so if you are concerned about your vehicle’s security, you should consider a layered approach. This means having multiple fail safes to ensure your vehicle is secured. For example, suppose you have a van with valuable tools kept in it. In that case, you could use a combination of van deadlocks, GPS tracking, and Autowatch ghost to completely throw off a would-be thief and enormously hinder a professional criminal. In addition, you will have an advantage over criminals by monitoring crime statistics in your local area through services such as ADT crime maps. You will also know how to prevent crime from happening to your vehicle.
