A crime prevention day is being held to help Derbyshire Defender owners reduce the risk of their vehicles falling prey to criminals. The event takes place at Carsington Water Visitors Centre near Ashbourne in Derbyshire between 10am and 2pm on Sunday, September 23. Any Defender driver whose vehicle registration details prove they live in the High Peak or Derbyshire Dales can buy subsidised steering wheel locks or take advantage of free security marking. Derbyshire Constabulary Crime reduction officer PC Bob Fox said, 'Defenders are often targeted by thieves who want to strip them and sell them for parts, which is why marking your vehicle can be an effective deterrent. Marking high-value parts with UV fluid also helps us to prosecute offenders.'
