Hutt City Council have joined forces with Hutt Valley Police to remind people that thieves are currently targeting parked vehicles in Lower Hutt. Jimmy Ballantyne (the Council’s City Safety Manager) says, “ Taking you valuable items with you when you park your vehicle is an easy and effective way of reducing the chances of your vehicle being targeted. The CRAVES acronym is a fun and simple way of remembering what thieves are looking for.”
