  • When parking at home, use your garage if you have one and lock garden gates. If you park on the street, try to leave your car in a well-lit area or near a CCTV camera

Cycles are still being left insecure in gardens.

Cycle Security - Theft of cycles is a widespread problem. So often, they are left unattended outside shops and homes. A new security product has come to light.

SPYLAMP Spylamp is a covert tracking device that is hidden inside a bicycle rear light. The rear light appears and functions as normal to avoid suspicion but inside it houses a complete GPS tracking device. Hold the on/off button down for 3 seconds and your tracker's vibration sensor will activate. Any subsequent movement of your bicycle will mean you get an instant SMS message and the tracking function will activate, so you can see where your bicycle is.
