Catalytic converter thefts

*************** Warning ******************

Overnight Thursday/Friday we have experienced a number of catalytic converter thefts in the Yate area.

Vehicles targeted have included Citroen Berlingo and Picassos, Ford Galaxy and a Fiat Scudo.

Numerous products are available to reduce the risk of your vehicle(s) being targeted, but products accredited to 'Secured by Design' standard are Police preferred. These include the simple and cost effective Retainagroup etching kits; the Fleet Talk 'cat clamp' and the SMS 'cat' alarm, each of which might be viewed on the Secured by Design  website under the heading 'Vehicle Security'.

In addition to the above, and where appropriate, consider signage to emphasise preventative measures taken, and general security, such as compound security and parking vehicles in such a manner as to make 'cats' as inaccessible as possible.

Needless to say, please report any suspicious activity to the Police on the 101 number.
