Police wish to remind the public to be vigilant with their personal belongings as opportunistic thieves target items such as purses, mobile phones, handbags, wallets in public places.

Members of the community are reminded:

*Do not leave your handbag in your trolley, carry it with you at all times.

*When loading the car, don't leave your handbag in the trolley - secure your bag first and lock the car doors.

*Don't leave your purse, mobile phone, handbag, or wallet on the table in restaurants or hotels.

*Remain vigilant about your property while in any business premises.  People often become relaxed or complacent about security in restaurants, laundromats, building sites, childcare centres, libraries, doctors' surgeries, bus depots, etc.

*Never leave valuables in a vehicle, regardless of whether the vehicle is locked or not.

*Be alert at ATMs and cover your PIN.  If you feel uneasy or concerned about your safety, cancel your transaction and go somewhere you feel safe.

*It only takes a second for an opportunistic thief to take your belongings.  Make it hard for them.
