Number Plate Thefts

Message Type IconBeds Alert LogoBedfordshire Police

There has been an increase of number plate thefts recently in Bedfordshire and Beds Police would like to remind you that this needs to be reported to them either via 101 or online at-

Index plates are often stolen to disguise another vehicle in the execution of crime therefore please see the following crime prevention advice-

  •  Stick-on plates are never a good idea, they can be removed quickly and quietly.
  • You can secure your plates by removing the original screws and replacing them with clutch-head screws. These are screws that can only be turned clockwise and you need a drill to remove them.

Also complete a daily check of the vehicle to ensure that your number plates are still attached to the vehicle.
