WEST Yorkshire motorists are being urged to think carefully about where they park their cars and what they leave in them.
The county police force's crime reduction officer, Det Insp John Minary, said drivers should be vigilant.
He added: "Whether you travel for work or pleasure, make sure you park in a car park that has a
Park Mark Safer Parking award.
"These car parks are designed with security and safety as an integral part of the package, with good lighting and some form of surveillance, such as CCTV or security staff.
"We would also encourage motorists not to leave anything at all on show in their vehicle. If you have to leave an item in your car lock it in the boot."
