Police officers in Sudbury are holding a free catalytic converter marking session to help reduce crime.

The event is taking place on Saturday at Red Star Garage in Woodhall Business Park between 10am and 1pm.

Members of the public are invited to attend during the day to get their catalytic converters marked free of charge by officers to reduce the chances of becoming a victim. No appointment necessary – just bring your vehicle along on the day.

Officers have also advised vehicle owners to follow these tips:

- Keep private vehicles in a well-secured garage where possible, and if no garage is available, in a well-lit public area.

- Park vehicles in such a way as to make access to the catalytic converter difficult, or parallel with another vehicle if you own one.

- Keep commercial vehicles in a locked building or compound.

- Use alarms, lighting and CCTV to deter thieves.

Further marking sessions will be organised in the future. For more details please contact your local Crime Reduction Officer by calling 101.
