In an emergency always call 999

Police issue advice following vehicle disturbance in Buxton

Posted on 30th April 2014

Officers from the Buxton and Fairfield Safer Neighbourhood Teams are encouraging motorists to increase their security following an incident in the area.

Overnight between 9pm on Sunday, April 27 and 5.30am on Monday, April 28, offenders gained entry to a red Nissan Almera that was parked on the driveway of a property on Granby Road, Buxton. No items were taken from the vehicle and no damage was caused.

The policing team will be heading out on increased patrols in the area and will be delivering leaflets in the area advertising drivers of the simple steps they can take to protect themselves and their vehicles from criminals.

Crime prevention advice includes:

  •  Make sure you lock all windows and doors when leaving your vehicle unattended - even if it's only for a short amount of time;
  •  Park in well-lit, overlooked areas;
  •  Keep any valuables out of sight, either in the boot or not in the car at all;
  •  If you have a sat nav, wipe the windscreen after you have removed it so there is no mark where the holder was placed.

Officers are encouraging residents to remain vigilant and report any incidents to police on 101 to prevent a crime from happening. Always call 999 in an emergency.

Anyone with any information regarding this incident or would like to speak to the team about crime prevention, call 101, the non-emergency number for Derbyshire police.
