Vehicle Plate Safe event in Watford


Officers from the Watford Outer Safer Neighbourhood Team will be holding a free Plate Safe event, Saturday 6th July from 10am – 1.30pm at Tesco Extra Car Park.

Drivers will be able to get anti-tamper screws fitted to their vehicle’s number plates in order to help prevent them from being stolen and discuss vehicle security.

Theft of car number plates can be hugely inconvenient and they can subsequently be used by criminals for offences such as bilking (theft of petrol) or evading speed camera fines.

It takes just minutes for the screws to be fitted and the service is completely free of charge.

The event is also a great opportunity to meet your local Safer Neighbourhood Team officers and discuss any local policing issues.

You will also be able to get home security and crime prevention advice, with demonstrations on CCTV/ Intruder Alarms and locks. Further information can be found here: For further information please contact Senior Press and PR Officer Becca Choules on
