Advice on keeping valuables out of sight whenever possible. When you
do have to take your phone or cash out in a public place, be aware

more likely to be targeted than one, which is properly secured: 'Remove
the Opportunity - Prevent the Burglary'.

can also reduce the risk of becoming a victim by making use of secure
car parks on the borough or parking in well-lit or residential areas.
