Reg plate thieves beware – cops have got your number
POLICE will be giving away special kits to prevent car number plates being stolen when they stage a special day of action on Mutley Plain next week.
And because the area has many migrant workers, with them will be experts in European languages who can help find out their concerns.
A member of the Mutley and Greenbank neighbourhood Policing team will be at the Costa Coffee house on Mutley Plain between 10am and 11am on Wednesday, December 5, to talk to local residents.
Other members of the team, supported by the Plymouth Local community partnership and the local fire service, will be outside the Baptist Church on Mutley Plain to offer crime prevention advice and reassurance.

PC Paul Weeks from the local policing team said: "We have a large migrant worker community in this area and have drawn from police resources and the fire service, a number of European language-speaking staff in order to engage with them effectively to address any issues or concerns they may have."
He added: "From a crime aspect, we have seen a trend of vehicle number plates being stolen which are then used on other vehicles involved in crimes such as stealing fuel or to avoid offences detected by cameras.
"To address this we have a limited number of anti-plate theft kits available free of charge to give to concerned motorists from our crime prevention stall."
