Our response:

UPDATE 12 Aug 2019 So far we have:

We have been carrying out regular patrols of the car parks in our local beauty spots, checking that valuables have not been left in vehicles and offering advice to members of the public.

We have worked with the land owners of the car parks affected, namely The National Trust, English Heritage and Clinton Devon Estates, and installed signage warning users to take their valuables with them when walking. These vandal proof sign frames have been paid for from Proceeds of Crime Act funds.

We aim to patrol these car parks at least once a day handing out ‘No valuables’ vehicle signs and stickers and we will be present during Clinton Devon Estates’ Heathweek.
