Stolen registration plates are often used by criminals to commit further offences such as placing them on stolen vehicles, petrol drive off offences and toll road evasion. In order to make vehicles more secure, police and Volunteers in Policing (VIPS) can apply one-way screws to the vehicle in order to make it difficult for registration plates to be removed by thieves.
If you would like safe plates fitted to your vehicle please contact Logan District Crime Prevention Unit on (07) 3826 1800 to arrange for an appropriate time for your plates to be correctly fitted with one way screws at your local police station. You can also call this number to arrange to use the engraver to mark your items (as explained in the property identification fact sheet linked above).
