Officers from Northamptonshire Police are continuing their campaign to cut down number plate theft.
The campaign, which started earlier this month, has seen police visit shopping centres around the area, with more than 100 cars fitted with tamper proof number plate screws. Many other people took the screws away to fit them at home.
The campaign is in response to a 98% rise in number plate thefts in the area since last year. Stolen number plates are often used to mask the identity of cars that are used in drive-offs from petrol stations, with the increase in thefts fuelled by increasing petrol prices.
Inspector Ali Reynolds of the Northamptonshire North Police Area said: "There has already been a good response to the scheme and I would urge others to come along and make their vehicles even safer."
