One caravan stolen every two weeks

SA police form partnership
in fight against RV thieves

Have your say

THIEVES are making off with one caravan every two weeks on average in South Australia, according to police.

Its State Community Engagement Section has now partnered with Neighbourhood Watch SA and the Caravan and Camping Industries Association of SA to tackle the problem by producing a crime prevention booklet specifically aimed at preventing theft of, and from, caravans and other RVs.

"For some, the ultimate retirement dream is to travel around Australia following the sun, but for others a caravan or camper trailer are a regular holiday option," a spokesperson said.

:Unfortunately the increased popularity of a 'holiday on wheels' can also mean an increasing opportunity for thieves with the average of one caravan being stolen every two weeks in South Australia."

The launch of a new crime prevention booklet aims to cut this rate by helping travellers to protect their property by suggesting simple security and crime prevention tips.

It sets out security and safety tips before undertaking a trip, during the journey and after the holidaymaker gets home.

It also contains bushfire and emergency information for travellers.

"It's important to keep your 'home away from home' just as secure as you would your actual house if you were going away," the spokesman said.

The booklet and further information on crime prevention can be obtained by clicking here:

They can also be collected from local police stations, caravan parks or most tourist information centres throughout South Australia
