Bribie Island Police are encouraging motorists to ensure they secure their vehicles in an effort to prevent opportunistic property crime and car thefts in the Bribie Island, Sandstone Point and Ningi areas. The Lock it or Lose it campaign aims to educate and remind members of the community and visitors to secure their homes and lock their vehicles and remove any valuables before leaving their car unattended.
The campaign aims at educating people to not leave valuable items in the car if they are leaving it unattended, or at least keep the items out of sight to discourage property theft. Police continue to discover vehicles that have been left unattended with windows down, keys in the ignition, spare car keys in the vehicle and valuables in plain view.
