Purse Theft Prevention

We are getting reports of purse thefts and handbag thefts in the Crewe Town Centre.
Last December we had an increase of purse thefts, especially in the CARD SHOPS.
Keep your bag across your body under your coat to the front of you.
Fasten all zips on bags.
Attach purse bells.
Don't leave bags on the back of chairs in cafes.
Keep car/house keys in a fastened pocket separate from you handbag.
Carry small amounts of money.
Wear a money belt.
Don't leave belongings on top of pushchairs.
If mobility scooter user keep valuables in your bag across your body rather than loose in the front basket.
REMEMBER Pickpockets often work in teams they create a distraction by bumping or shoving, dropping something, or asking a question while others lift wallets/purses from pockets.
Many Thanks
Pcso Probin.
