Police Launch Vehicle Watch Scheme
Use of stickers to help keep your car safe
Ealing Police are launching a vehicle watch scheme to assist in reducing the number of vehicles stolen in the Borough. Residents are being supplied with stickers to display, if appropriate, in the rear window of their vehicle to highlight any unusual usage. This will invite the police to stop the vehicle, when operationally possible, and to check that driver is in lawful possession.
Vehicle Watch Overnight (12 - 5am): Vehicles that are not normally used overnight should display an Overnight 12 - 5am sticker. This will invite police officers to stop and confirm the lawful ownership of any vehicle displaying this sticker that they see being used between these times.
Vehicle Watch 25+ : If your vehicle is not normally driven by anyone under the age of 25 years, then by displaying a 25+ sticker you will invite police officers to stop and confirm the lawful ownership of any vehicle displaying this sticker that they see being used by a person who appears to be below this age group.
