A drop in surgery aimed at cutting car crime is taking place at Pirton Hill Primary School on Sunday.

Luton’s North and West Community Policing Team are asking motorists to come along to have their vehicle number plates secured with tamper proof fixings.

Residents can also meet local officers pass on information or concerns they have and pick up crime prevention advice.

They will also be able to offer personal, property, home and car security advice.

Event organiser, PCSO Izzy Stone, pictured, said: “We are looking forward to meeting as many members of the public as possible, since it is only by working closely with the community that we can truly impact on crime.

“There has been a spate of vehicle crimes in this area recently and this is why we are holding the Operation Caps day.

“Most thieves are opportunistic and it is really quick and simple to take just a few moments to secure your vehicle and property against these criminals.”

Anyone who would like to contact the team before the event can call PCSO Izzy Stone on 01582 473473 and anyone wishing to contact the force’s Crime Reduction Team can ring 101 or email:
