There's been a rise in the number of thefts of trailers in Dorset this month. (December)

If you own a horse, livestock or flatbed trailer you could be at risk of being targeted.

Dorset Police has issued this advice to help keep you protected from this type of rural theft: 

    • Record trailer serial numbers and photographs for reference
    • Put your postcode on the roof of your livestock or horse box 
    • Have your trailer marked with a security marking scheme such as Datatag
    • Ensure any trailers have suitable locks and a wheel clamp fitted
