Crime Prevention- Land Rovers

Owners of both old and new Land Rovers should be taking extra precautions to protect them from being targeted by thieves. Building layers of security will act as a deterrent, think about where you park and always lock your vehicle, even if only popping into the shops.  If you have a Land Rover you may wish to check the following specialist site and the Leicestershire Police Crime Prevention site.

Rutland County Council Conversation.

Normally we only publicise Community Safety information.  We have been asked by the local police to draw your attention to a consultation initiative run by Rutland County Council (see link below).  It is your choice if you engage in this but I would simply say that Crime and Safety issues can be recorded within your priorities e.g. Speeding, Police visibility, Crime Prevention, etc.
