Harrow Online has learned that there have been two reported cases of theft from motor vehicles, specifically targeting blue badges.
The incidents have occurred along Alexandra Avenue in South Harrow overnight between the 3rd and 4th July. The stolen badges were not openly displayed but rather stored securely in the vehicles’ glove boxes.
PCSO Louise Nicholson, a Watch Liaison Officer, has issued a public plea urging residents who possess blue badges to remove them from their cars and keep them safely indoors.
This precautionary measure comes in response to the reported thefts, which have left affected individuals without their blue badges, a valuable and essential tool for those with disabilities.
Blue badges play a crucial role in providing accessible parking privileges for individuals with disabilities, enabling them to carry out daily tasks and access necessary services without unnecessary obstacles.
Consequently, the theft of these badges not only disrupts the lives of their rightful owners but also undermines the principles of inclusivity and support for disabled individuals within the community.
