A typical comment from a Kapiti Facebook page–

My car got broken into, trashed and stolen from yesterday or the night before on Lorna Irene Drive, I called the police and they said they would send someone over in 20 minutes. between the time of 11.30 to about 4.30 I had called 3 extra times to ask when they where showing up, just to be told it wasn’t important enough for the cops to come investigate. All the time while I needed to get my car towed and I was waiting for a cop to show up. I am shocked at the lack of action and care by our police to the point they won’t even come look at the scene of a crime.

Three practical steps you can take to prevent car theft:

  1. Install an Audible Alarm System and Anti-Theft Device.
  2. Install a Vehicle Immobilizer System.
  3. Install a Tracking System.
