UP TO 1,000 people were given safety advice by police as part of a scheme to crackdown on vehicle crime.
The Malvern Hills Community Safety Partnership, with Malvern Police and Malvern Hills Conservators, handed out vehicle security tips to walkers who visited the town’s hills during July.
Post cards, car fresheners and stickers were all handed out to owners.
PC Cliff Green, of Malvern Safer Neighbourhood Team, said: “The public have been very receptive and appreciative of this crime prevention and reassurance initiative.
“Some members of the public stated the information had reminded them not to leave valuable property on view in their vehicles and had returned to their cars to remove items such as sat navs and handbags.
“With continued police patrols and the raised awareness of the public in relation to vehicle security it is expected vehicle crime on the Malvern Hills car parks will continue to be low and Malvern remain a safe place to visit.”
There was one report of theft from a vehicle on the hills in July.
