Coolum Police are reminding holidaymakers to keep their property safe and secure these school holidays.

Below are a few tips to help keep your property safe:

  • Check that all doors and windows for your car, boat, caravan or cabin are locked securely, including the annex of your van or tent.
  • Try not to have valuables such as mobile phones, banks cards and money at the beach. If you do take valuables to the beach, do not leave them unattended.
  • Leaving valuables on display may encourage opportunistic thieves to help themselves. Always keep your valuables out of sight.
  • When leaving your property, don't leave any notes behind that may indicate how long you will be absent.
  • Get to know the people staying next to you and keep an eye on their property.
  • Report any suspicious people or behaviour to the park management or to Police.
  • Use locking devices on tow bars.

Remember that although you may be holidaying, criminals continue to work.

It is important to take preventative measures to protect yourselves and your property.

Tempting targets

Most valuables are stolen when the taking is easy.

Popular items stolen include cash, liquor, jewellery, mobile phones, cameras, fishing gear, portable BBQs, fridges and electrical equipment.

Be sure to secure your property, no matter where you are these holidays.
