Increase in theft of Ford Fiestas

01/01/2024 About 1 minute
Essex Police continue to see an increase in people reporting their Ford Fiestas being stolen.

Uniformed police officers and Police Community Support Officers (PCSOs) have been out on foot patrol and in marked police cars to deter potential thieves and on the lookout for suspicious behaviour.

To help keep your vehicle safe, consider using extra security features such as a full round steering lock or on-board diagnostic (OBD) protection, which can help prevent thieves gaining access to your car.

If you see any suspicious behaviour, please report it to the police. You can give information by using the Digital 101 service. If you see a crime happening, then call 999 immediately.

The Stolen Vehicle Intelligence Unit work to tackle organised vehicle crime and last year recovered a record number of stolen vehicles. Every year the team are tracking down more stolen vehicles and building a bigger intelligence picture.
