Many crimes happen on the spur of the moment, with thieves often taking advantage of an open window or valuables left on display in a car.
Most of the suggestions in this book are practical, common sense and don't cost much - but they can make a real difference. Not securing your home, car, belongings or identity just isn't worth the cost and hassle!
Some of the advice in this book is specific to the City of York and North Yorkshire, but the vast majority should apply anywhere in the UK. For more advice, you can contact your local police force by dialing 101.
