Number plate security screws

posted 15 Sept 2010, 12:12 by Dawn Grove

You will be aware of an increase in thefts of vehicle number plates. Not a day goes past without at least one of these being reported to the police. The stolen plates are often then used in crime, such as drive-off thefts from petrol stations, or more serious incidents. This can lead to inconvenience and potential problems for the owner of the stolen plates. One way to prevent such thefts is to replace the screws with theft-resistant security screws. We now have a limited supply of these, which can be collected FREE OF CHARGE from the enquiry desk at Lichfield Police station. Please note, if the existing screws are corroded it is probably not worth replacing them. Also, once fixed with these screws the plates cannot be removed without breaking them!
