It takes a few seconds to steal from a vehicle. Store your keys away from household entry points. Keeping your keyless entry fob out of sight is not enough – thieves only need to get close to the key to amplify the signal.
Invest in what’s known as a Faraday pouch – a small pouch made from materials that block the signal. When a fob is stored and sealed inside the pouch the frequency signal is completely blocked, meaning tech-savvy thieves are unable to scan or boost the proximity signal to gain unauthorised access to a vehicle.
Remember, vehicle crime is an occupation for some people, don’t make your vehicle an easy target for them.
In partnership with the Police And Crime Commissioner, LANPAC have distributed over 300 Faraday Pouches across the county.
