Dog Safety Advice

Staffordshire Police are warning residents to be aware that across the country there has been an increase in thefts of and attempt thefts of dogs due to price and demand of dogs/puppies increasing during lockdown.

Think about the following if you are a dog owner: –

SAFE
Make sure your garden and your property is as secure as it can be, ensure your dog is microchipped and that your contact details are kept up to date with the data base provider. If you are walking your dog and you’re listening to music make sure that you can still hear your surroundings and be vigilant to anyone acting suspiciously and approaching you.

SPOTTABLE
When you are walking your dog please make sure you keep them in sight and never leave them unsupervised. Have them well trained so they come back to you as soon as they are called.

SEARCHABLE
Make sure you know what steps to take should your dog go missing. Report the theft to the Police, you can also report this theft to your local authority dog warden and notify your micro chip data base provider.
Please be cautions when walking your dogs and as a precaution where possible keep them on a lead or even better two. Report any suspicious activity to the Police straight away. For further information look at http://www.dogstrust.org.uk

Protect Your Car

Car crime is a real problem in the UK. Alarmingly, one car is stolen every ten minutes. With Covid-19 and the recent lockdowns, many people aren’t driving or checking on their cars as much as they used to. Car owners must remain vigilant about where and how they park their cars, in order to keep them safe.

“Most car crimes happen because cars are left unlocked. There is a misconception that some cars are auto-locking and lock themselves if left unattended after a period of time. This isn’t always correct. Another misconception is that your car is too old and no one will bother stealing it.  This is also incorrect – both new and old cars are at risk. Having a car stolen or broken into is more than simply a hassle, it can impact on people’s livelihoods. The good news is that there are simple steps everyone can take to help reduce the risk to their car. With only a 46% recovery rate car owners are being reminded to leave their car locked, lit and empty.”
